A FIVE-YEAR-OLD Aberystwyth girl has had her “beautiful long hair” cut off and raised more than £400 to help a child with cancer.
Sienna Hutton was sent an elf by Santa to teach her about the true meaning of Christmas, and she has since been busy spreading joy and helping people less fortunate than herself.
Among the selfless acts, Sienna has handed out flowers to strangers, festively painted pebbles on the beach for other people to find, picked up litter off the beach, and treated a homeless person to lunch.
Sienna’s mum Sabrina Hutton told the Cambrian News: “She made mini Christmas flower bouquets and handed them out to strangers while they shopped. The reactions were varied; some said no and thought she wanted money, but once they realised she was doing it just as an act of kindness, they were taken aback."
But her main act of kindness this Christmas has been to help a young person suffering the effects of hair loss due to cancer treatment, an act motivated by the loss of two family members to cancer.
Sabrina added: “Her words were ‘I want to make a little poorly boy or girl’s Christmas wish come true’, so she’s having her beautiful long hair cut off to make a wig for Christmas. So far she’s raised more than £400. This is the girl who always wanted to be Rapunzel, and vowed never to cut her hair.”
