At just eight years old, Noah Craze could do nothing but watch on as his brother underwent chemotherapy for his recently diagnosed leukaemia.

But as he sat in the hospital and watched people walk by, an idea popped into his his head.

"Josh's chemotherapy and radiotherapy made him very ill and he lost all of his hair," now ten-year-old Noah said.

"When I stayed with Josh at the Royal Marsden I saw lots of children who also had no hair and I saw how excited the children got when their wigs were delivered (especially the girls).

"I decided to grow my hair and donate it so that more children can have wigs."

And grow it he did.

Then this past week, after two years of growing and grooming his long locks, it finally came time to chop it all off.

In the end, Noah was able to raise more than £3000 for Anthony Nolan, the charity that helped match Josh with a stem cell donor and saved his life.
