IT wasn’t just an ordinary trip to the hairdresser for 10-year-old Flynn Jones.

For the Merton Bank pupil had his hair cut for the first time in two years at the Hairfection salon on Pocket Nook Street after deciding to have it shaved off for the Little Princess Cancer Trust, which specialises in making wigs for children who lose their hair due to illness.

Flynn, who plays rugby at Blackbrook, is also a keen magician and was initially inspired by his hero TV Dynamo, who has helped teenage cancer charities.

“He seems genuinely interested in helping others,” said his mother Sanja, 42.

“He’s seen Dynamo doing all of this and Flynn’s magic isn’t quite good enough to make any money yet so he started thinking what he could do.

“He was born on a Good Friday and is a Good Friday child. He is doing it to help the Little Princess Trust and knowing it can help make life easier for another child.” Flynn has already beaten his target to raise £350 thanks to online donations.
