Sisters Emer and Lauren Lynch joined forces to raise money for the Rapunzel Foundation, a charity which provides wigs for people suffering from hair loss.

Our Lady of Lourdes student Emer, 17, came up with the idea after hearing about other girls donating their hair. Inspired by her sister, Lauren, 10, who attends St Joseph's NS in Clonard, Wexford, said she would also donate her hair.

Supported by their principals and teachers, the Lynch girls of Clonleigh, Palace, raised €340 within a short space of time.

They travelled together to Anna Furlong's hair salon in New Ross where they were treated like royalty and given new hair dos.

Emer said: 'I just wanted to give something back to people who are suffering from cancer and hair loss. We want to thank everyone who supported us. To be honest I was glad to have it cut as I had been growing it for some time. It was all worthwhile and people have said they like our new hair styles.'
