A young girl from Aylesbury is cutting her hair off today for charity.

10yr old Rebecca Slater is doing it at Relay for life Aylesbury which is an annual 24hr event which raises funds for Cancer Research UK.

She is donating her hair to The Princess Trust who provide real hair wigs for girls and boys who have lost theirs.

Rebecca wrote this letter to her family & friends to ask for their support:

"Hello, my name is Rebecca I'm 10 years old. This year, at Relay for Life a 24 hour walking team event in aid of CRUK, I will be having my hair cut and donating my hair to The Princess Trust . The Princess Trust provides real  hair wigs to girls and boys who have sadly lost their hair.  I have seen my mum lose her hair through chemotherapy and I know what side effects it has. If you would like to sponsor me please go to my Relay for Life Aylesbury page . Thank you x "

Their team for the Relay event is called "Breastfriends" which her mum has been part of since the first relay in 2009.
