The first cut is the kindest

Five-year-old Galashiels lad Arthur Grabowski went to a barber's for the first time in his life at the weekend, setting up the Little Princess Trust for a donation of two braids of hair 52cm long.

Proud mum Daria told us: “Arthur didn’t want his hair cut until he was five. It was very long.

“We told him about the Little Princess Trust, and he made the decision to do it this way.

“I sort of prefer my wee angel with long hair, but he is more happy with short hair.”

The cut was performed by Luigi Caterino of the Italian Job salon, and he put up a live video of the event on his Facebook page.

Daria said Arthur has also raised more than £100 for the charity.
