Plucky Bo’ness youngster Olivia Paterson recently had her hair cut to help make wigs for children with cancer.

Four-year-old Olivia decided to get her hair cut after enquiring about it for Children in Need.

Mum Charlene, who runs Cuteso Creations in Bo’ness, told her the aim was to raise money for children who are less fortunate and have health problems such as cancer.

Olivia told her mum she wanted to get her long hair cut so that it could go towards making wigs for young cancer sufferers through the Little Princess Trust.

Her aunt Melissa Davies, a hairdresser, cut Olivia’s hair and she raised £500 for Children in Need by carrying out the deed.

Mum Charlene is very proud of Olivia, who attends Kinneil Primary Nursery.

She said: “She is a special wee girl! She wanted to do her bit for Children in Need and, as well as donating her hair, she raised £500.

“We want to thank family and friends, the nursery and those who gave to her justgiving page.”
