A 16-year-old Royston student is using her starring role in the school play as an opportunity to raise money for a good cause.
Izzy Palmer will play Fantine in Meridian School’s production of Les Miserables – and the scene in which the character sells her own hair inspired her to donate her own locks to the Little Princess Trust.
She said: “I thought this was the perfect opportunity to raise some money for a great cause. I’ve been wanting to donate to the charity for a long time.”
The Little Princess Trust provides real hair wigs free of charge to boys and girls suffering from cancer and other conditions causing hair loss such as alopecia.
Izzy’s hair will be used to create a new wig for a child – something that would normally cost a minimum of £50.

The school is collecting donations and Izzy’s locks will be lopped off by fellow students on Monday. Later in the week, audiences at Les Miserables will also get the opportunity to donate.
Alternatively, people can donate by searching ‘Izzy’s Sponsored Hair Cut’ on the mydonate.bt.com website.
