Cara and Victoria ready for a charity chop

SOUTH ESSEX friends Cara Noble and Victoria Chipps have pledged to get their flowing locks chopped off to raise money for children’s cancer charity, the Little Princess Trust.

Events Manager Cara, 28, and administration assistant Victoria, 22 – who is known as Tori at the Basildon-based club – will have at least seven inches lopped off on Sunday, March 5.

The ‘cutting ceremony’ at the Basildon Sporting Village will take place during the interval of the Men’s Artistic Challenge Cup competition.

Brunette Tori said: “You have to have at least seven inches cut off to donate your hair for the wigs that are made by the charity.

“But I will be getting at least ten inches cut off and maybe 12 – so we are getting into having a bob territory!

“We are also considering letting one of the parents watching the competition do the cutting, but that is yet to be confirmed.”

Blonde Cara said: “Tori and I have been working with children for a number of years and find great happiness in seeing the things that we do put a smile on their faces.

“This year we have decided to extend that to doing a sponsored hair cut and donating some of our hair to this amazing charity.”

The Little Princess Trust provides real-hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses.
