The Matt's Mission event in Solihull will see the girls have their hair chopped off by children who actually have cancer themselves. The hair will then be sent off to be made into wigs.

Professional hair-stylists will then tidy up the cuts the girls get.

It's part of an event at the Hogarth Hotel which also includes children's activities and music.
