A KIND-hearted Netherton school girl has vowed to help sick children by cutting off her hair.

Chloe Farrington, aged 11, will soon be having her much-loved long hair chopped off in support of Matt's Mission, a children's charity that grant the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses and disabilities.

The Dudley Wood Primary School pupil was inspired to take on the fundraising challenge after her grandmother shaved her hair off for the charity two years ago and various family members have battled cancer.

Chloe was also moved to do something to help ill children after following the work of Matt's Mission on Facebook.

Chloe's proud mum Tammy said: "I'm so proud of her. If anybody needs help she's there. She loves helping everybody. If she can she will.

"She turned to me and said 'Mom, it's a shame there is children out there suffering. I want to do something. I want to cut my hair.;"

Tammy's locks will be cut on March 24, when she will also attend an award ceremony in Birmingham organised by the charity where she will be able to meet some of the children she will be helping.

Chloe said: "I want to make children feel better and for them to smile and be happy and my hair will do that for them."

The determined school girl is aiming to raise £500 by the time the undergoes the hair cut.
