Flora, 13, has been growing her hair and at the end of this summer 2017, she will be cutting it to donate to the Little Princess Trust, who make wigs for children who are receiving cancer treatment.
She would like to raise some sponsorship for doing this and donate the proceeds to Harlow's Helping Hand, a local charity set up to provide financial help for funeral or headstone costs to bereaved families who have lost a child.

Last Sunday's 'Gala Rocks' at the common in Coupar Angus featured a balloon release to raise funds for Harlow's Helping Hand. Sara and Steve later announced that £463.77 had been raised.
On 2nd September Monika Paulsen will walk across the new Queensferry bridge to raise funds for two charities, Harlow's Helping Hand and Pregnancy Sickness Support.
Mrs Paulson commented, "These are both very small charities and every penny does make a huge difference so appreciate any support you can give no matter how small or large. I will split the funds 50/50 between these charities."

Harlow’s Helping Hand, founded by bereaved parents Sara and Steven Edwards, has been given a registered charity number by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
Speaking to the Tele, Sara, 36, said the registered status would create more opportunities for Harlow’s Helping Hand as its work continues.
Sara said: “It was nice to finally get it after all our work, but we got there.
“It took a bit of work between them and us to get it after we applied for it in February.
“The charity number gives us the accreditation that officials are looking for — it tells businesses that want to work with us that the charity is being run properly.”
Harlow’s Helping Hand was created in memory of two-year-old Harlow, who was knocked down and killed in Coupar Angus in October.
The charity has already helped eight families who have lost young children with support for funeral flowers, headstones and other unexpected costs....(click here to see rest of article in Evening Telegraph)
