A DINGWALL schoolgirl was so delighted with a charity chop of her locks for kids suffering from cancer that she's already planning to do it again.

A trio of Dingwall Primary School pupils were watched by supporters as their long locks were reduced to bobs so their tresses could be used by the Little Princess Trust.

Rebecca Mowat (6), Megan Stewart (11) and Emily Kubat (7) were surrounded by a cheering crowd as the scissors were wielded, with hopes high that up to £1000 will also be raised for the cause.

Emily's mum, Donna Maxwell, said: "The girls are high as a kite, they are so excited. So many kids stopped to watch and cheer during the cut. It was an amazing day. All of the girls went for a bob haircut and they love it!

"They have also seen a real wig made by the Little Princess Trust, and this made them realise even more what their hair donation will go towards. Emily was so happy she decided to do this again and to grow her hair for it."

She said that the school, community and local businesses were a huge support.

"It was such a great atmosphere."
