A 13-year-old Watford schoolgirl has shaved her head to raise £4,000 for children battling cancer.

Anjali Moser, who attends Watford Grammar School for Girls, made the drastic change for the Little Princess Trust and Children's Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG).

She said: "It was exciting to get it cut. It's really different now.

"I thought little children who don't have hair would enjoy having my hair more than I do.

"It made me very proud that people have donated so much."

Mum Kirra was with Anjali for the charity chop at The Wacky Barber on Market Street.

She said: "It was amazing. The donations are at £4,000, we're really pleased."

Well done, but I am awaiting the next story of her having inappropriate hair for school when she goes back and gets suspended.

She didn't have inappropriate hair for school. We liaised with the school about the best way to do this. The shave was done over two days, so she had very short hair for the last day of school, and shaved it when school finished. . She now has the summer holidays to grow it back. It will be appropriate again by September, ready for the start of the new school year.

I never said that she had inappropriate hair for school, it seems nowadays that schools are not very lenient towards kids doing charitable things like this.

For someone who wants to donate her hair for charity, it is never inappropriate, like ever, no-one will say that it is, except for a few people like you for example.. Please do not say such things about someone who's giving up her hair for children with leukaemia.

Thank you :)
