Poppy Lee-Burrowes getting her haircut. See SWNS story SWBRafro. An eleven-year-old girl who has waited half her life to donate her hair to charity has finally chopped of her afro. Poppy Lee-Burrowes, from Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales, hoped to give away her locks to make wigs when she was five, but at the time the Little Princess Trust said it was unable to make wigs from afro hair. Yesterday (22 Feb), Poppy was finally able to make her wish come true - as she donated a startling 12 inches of hair and raised £2732! The whole family, Poppy and her mums Jessica Lee-Burrowes and Beki LB, went to L&CO Unisex Hair Studio in Aberdare, Wales, for the highly awaited event.
