A Felton student went to great lengths to help a children’s charity.

Harrison Sleet, a 19-year-old who is studying psychology at university, had not cut his hair in three years.

But inspired by a pal who had lost his through illness, he decided to get the chop and donate it to the Little Princess Trust.

The charity provides real hair wigs free of charge to children and young adults up to the age of 24, who have lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses.

So, last Saturday at The Foxes Den pub in the village, hairdresser Dawn Eastham, from the Bonny Hoose in Alnwick, set about the task of cutting Harrison’s hair into bunches suitable for the charity. It took her an hour-and-a-half.

Harrison also raised £500 at the event and on his JustGiving page, https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/harrison-sleet, which is still active if you wish to donate.
