Stanley Anness, who lives in Stonham Aspal, has had his hair chopped and shaved for the Little Princess Trust.

The 16-year-old braved the shave on April 4, at the hairdressers he has been going to since he was a baby, Capelli’s in Ipswich.

He said: I spent ages trying to grow it - before yesterday the last time I had it cut was six months ago and that was just a trim. It was so easy and quick to do and makes such a big difference to someone’s life, my hair will grow back so why not do it.”

Gillian Allard, Stanley’s mum, described Stanley as having a ‘very sweet nature.’ She said: “I was surprised when he said he wanted to do it because he had spent so long trying to grow it, but he is a very kind hearted person so he thought he would.”
