The money she has gathered will go to Auction Duchenne which aims to help people living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) – the condition that her five-year-old friend Dexter Ward has.

Madison’s hair was cut shorter by about 35cm at a salon in Cambridge on Saturday, and this will now be donated to the Little Princess Trust which makes wigs for young cancer sufferers.

Mum Teresa said: “I’m so very proud of her.”
