Max Penney, from Yatton, will cut his hair on August 10 which will be donated to the Little Princess Trust.

His mother, Jayne Penney, says Max insisted on taking part in the charitable act despite the fact he likes having long and thick hair.

Jayne added: "One of his friends got her hair cut for the trust and he became very inspired.

"He started to learn more about the charity and why some children lose their hair.
