Her mum Carrie Oxbury, of Rowton Grange Road, Chapel-en-le-Frith, said: “I can’t believe how grown up she looks, it really suits and I’m so proud of her.

“She has been asking me for over a year if she could get her hair cut off and I told her she needed to think about it.”
Kalyse’s hair has gone to the Little Princess Trust which provides real hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Carrie said: “She got the idea after a girl in another class did it and she kept saying she wanted to help the sick children.

“She has always been hair mad and loved having long hair so I told if she cuts it will take a long time to grown back. She wasn’t put off and spent time researching the charity so she knew how much hair is needed to make a wig and was very determined.”
Kalyse went for the chop last week and the year six Chapel Primary School pupil has also raised £265 for the charity.

Carrie added: “When she was shown how much was taken off her mouth dropped open but now she can’t stop touching it and smiling.”
