Ella's donating her fair hair for Rapunzel cause

Little Ella Murray from Riverstown is gearing up to chop her locks to share with others this summer.

The 8-year-old has been growing her long hair for the past three years in order to cut it for charity.

It's Ella's second time to do this - at aged just five Ella donated her long hair to charity.

Next May 18th she's set to cut it again at Salon 2.

"I have decided to cut my long hair and donate it to the Rapunzel Foundation who will use it to make wigs for little people who do not have their own hair," says Ella.

"This is my second time to do this so I thought I would see if people might be happy to sponsor me so I can help the Laura Lynn charity too. Mum told me about all the good work they do to help little people who are sick so thank you for helping me to help them," she says.

"She cut it before so I'm very proud of her for doing it again," said mum Eadaoin Murray.

Her target is €300 and people can donate at
