Little angel Imogen McBride has chopped off her golden locks to help cancer sufferers.

The kind-hearted five-year-old, who attends Pendle Primary School in Clitheroe, said: “I saw a picture on mummy’s phone of a little girl who had short hair and was poorly.

“I talked with mummy about giving my hair to a charity and helping other little boys and girls who are not well to make them feel better.”

Imogen’s hair will be weaved into a wig for children who have lost their hair during cancer treatment.

Imogen, whose granddad has been treated for cancer, added: “I’m running The Race For Life this year to try and help other people who need medicine to make them better, just like granddad.”

Imogen goes to the Grand Theatre’s Streetfeet once a week, a dance class for youngsters.

And Streetfeet organiser Kay Gibson said: “Imogen has a golden heart and to be thinking about other children who are not very well at such a young age is an amazing thing.

“Imogen does lots of charity work.

“She is a very kind and thoughtful girl.”
