A nine-year-old who has severe sensory difficulties celebrated his first haircut in three years by donating his locks to charity.

Oscar-Noha from Sutton has raised more than £800 for the Little Princess Trust, which will use his hair to make wigs for children with cancer.

Mrs Kelly Martin- Jordison said her son wanted to raise money in memory of his grandad Keith Salter whom he lost to cancer.

Oscar-Noha was born with sensory difficulties, which meant he encountered many everyday struggles, including going to get his hair cut.

Your Local Guardian:

"He did not like people touching his hair/head and would scream and cry when I took him to the hairdressers," said Kelly.

"Eventually as he grew older, it became more difficult to take him.

"At the age of six was the last time I was able to encourage him to go because he would become very stressed.

"We decided to let him wait until he was ready and confident."

Oscar-Noha was born with a rare complex medical condition called Tracheoesophageal fistula and Oesophageal Atresia (TOFS).

He has had 12 surgery's since he was born and had a lifesaving surgery at three-years-old at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

"This life he has had has inspired him to help others, especially children," said Kelly.

"He wants to become a doctor, nurse or a midwife when he is older like his mummy.

Your Local Guardian:

"I am so proud of him. He has been through a journey in his nine years of life that no one could even imagine.

"He still has the most infectious smile on his face, always wants to help others and never gives up on his goals.

"He has raised £826 for having almost 15inches of his hair cut off for The Little Princess Trust.

"This is absolutely incredible and we thank everyone who sponsored him."
