A young scout in Bromley has managed to raise over £1,000 by cutting her hair.

Beau Morton-Turner cut 15” of hair off, donating the sheared remains to the Little Princesses charity, which turns hair into a wig for children suffering from cancer.

The 13-year-old scout, who is part of 14th Bromley Scouts, decided to share the money between Little Princesses and the Make-a-Wish foundation.

“Having long just wasn’t doing it for me” said the teenager.

“I have a friend in junior school who had donated her hair to charity so I knew I could do the same.

“So when my class chose Make-a-Wish foundation as it’s chosen charity for the year it gave me the idea. I just want to thank everyone for their support it’s really been overwhelming.”
