Six-year-old Daisy Cone, a pupil at Burlington Infants, wanted to do something to help in memory of her grandad Richard, who was cared for at the hospice.

Daisy had an initial fundraising target of £100 but she easily passed this total with the amount raised now at £460.

The locks, which were chopped off as part of the fundraising campaign, as also been put to good use

Daisy's grandad Richard White.

Holly White, Daisy’s mum, explained that Daisy came up with the idea herself as her grandad lost his hair when he had chemotherapy

Daisy’s long locks will now be donated to the Little Princess Trust, who provide wigs for children undergoing treatment.

Daisy said: “I wanted to raise money so the lovely people who looked after my grandad can look after more people in the future.”

Holly said: “The staff at the hospice were so lovely.

“They were absolutely amazing with Daisy and made such a fuss of her.

“The care my dad received was amazing, too. The nurses would always spend time and come and chat to him.”

“Daisy is so excited that so many people have donated. She is so proud of herself and she loves her new hair!

“She can’t wait for her hair to be made into a wig. I’m just so, so proud of her.”

Daisy has smashed her funds target. However, her Justgiving page is still open for donations.
