Ten-year-old Amber Rutherford has raised thousands for CancerCare after her mum was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Amber decided to chop her locks to donate to The Little Princess Trust after witnessing her mum, Tina Knott, lose her own hair due to chemotherapy treatment.

Tina Knott said: “Amber has coped really well with my illness and I am so proud she came up with this idea whilst supporting me at the same time.”
