Lexie Parkinson, of Lostock Hall, raised £80 for the Little Princess Trust. Her hair will also be donated to the trust.
The Lostock Hall Primary School pupil said: “My hair makes me feel pretty so it’s nice for other children to feel the same, especially when they might not be feeling it. I want to help other girls. I like my new hair as I can brush it easily. I am happy I have raised so much money.”
