A TEENAGE girl has chopped off 20 inches of her hair for charity.
Riley Pergolis-Carpenter, 15, donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust – a charity that makes real hair wigs for children who have lost their hair through chemotherapy.
Riley’s proud mum Joanne, 39, said: “Riley had been talking about how there was so much pressure on teenage girls to look a certain way and she decided to cut her hair.
“She thought what better way to help other children than this.”
