TWO SISTERS have had their hair chopped off by a teacher in their school assembly to raise money for a little boy suffering from a rare form of epilepsy. Grace Stanley, 7, and her 5-year-old sister Florence, from Sedgefield Primary School, County Durham, had just over 12 inches cut from their long hair to send to The Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children suffering from hair loss.
