Year three student Lily Van Weerdenburg, of Moruya's St Mary's Primary School, has been growing out her hair for a reason.
Lily wanted it to be long enough to be made into a wig for suffering children. She raised $1,577 for the cause.
"I have made the decision to make a difference by cutting and donating my hair to be made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair due to a medical condition," she said.
"Wigs cost families up to $6000, lasting 1-2 years, meaning families can spend tens of thousands of dollars on the purchase of wigs throughout a child's youth.
"By making a donation to Variety - the Children's Charity, you can help provide a wig or other vital equipment to a child in need."
After years of growing it out, Broulee hairdresser Brooke Pike came to her school assembly to cut off about 36 cms of her locks on Monday, October 21.
The charity said it supported kids who were sick, disadvantaged or had special needs.
"Our work allows kids to gain mobility, to get out and about in the community, to communicate, achieve independence and increase their self-esteem. We make sure the kids who miss out, can always join in," a spokesperson said.
In 2017, Batemans Bay builder Tony Ferrante was part of 20 G.J. Gardner Homes teams across NSW that raised $18,000 for the charity.
Last year, Batehaven's Mick O'Malley raised nearly $25,000.
In February 2018, the charity donated $90,000 worth of play equipment to Corrigans Reserve Inclusive Playground.
