‘Proud’ 10-year-old girl cuts off hair for second time for charity | UK News

A 10-year-old girl who cut off her hair for charity for a second time has said she feels “really proud”.

Lexie Warwick-Oliver, from Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, had the chop on Saturday afternoon and is now donating 13 inches of hair to make a wig for a young person with cancer.

“I’m feeling really proud of myself,” she said.

“I felt a bit nervous at first, but I really like my hair now and I’m really relieved it is over and done with.”

Lexie has autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – which made the haircut even more challenging.

“It’s very difficult for Lexie to let anybody touch her because of her autism, so we did struggle a bit today, but we got through it,” said Lexie’s mother, Jess Warwick-Oliver.

The hair salon in Horsforth offered Lexie a discount and gave her some curly hair products after they found out why she was having the cut.

Her hair will be posted to the Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides free wigs to young people who have lost their hair due to cancer or other conditions.

Lexie will receive a certificate from the charity to congratulate her on her efforts.

In 2021, the youngster cut off 16 inches of hair for the charity, as well as raising £500 to support the daughter of a family friend who had leukaemia.

It took Lexie three years to grow out her hair again so that she had enough to be turned into a wig.

The 10-year-old has also been raising money for sensory items for those with additional needs at Howard Park Community School, her primary school.

She wants to get bubble lights, fidget spinners and space blankets for pupils as she has first-hand experience of the benefits.

“They make me feel better, more regulated and calmer,” she said.

When asked what her message was to others who have autism or ADHD, Lexie said: “Don’t let anyone try to stop you from achieving your goals. Ignore them and keep going.”

The schoolgirl added she hopes she can inspire others to follow her hair-cutting example.

“Hopefully they’ll see what I did and feel comfortable enough to cut their hair and donate to people with cancer, so it’ll make them feel better,” she said.

“Don’t be nervous about cutting off hair – be brave, it’ll grow back.”

Ms Warwick-Oliver said she is “so proud” of her daughter.

“She’s done this and it has been so selfless – she’s not done it for herself, it’s for two causes and I’m really proud of her.”

Father among three charged with murder of 10-year-old Sara Sharif | UK News

Three people have been charged with the murder of 10-year-old Sara Sharif.

Surrey Police said the Crown Prosecution Service authorised charges against Sara’s father, Urfan Sharif, 41, his partner, Beinash Batool, 29, and his brother, Faisal Malik, 28, all of Hammond Road, Woking.

They have also been charged with causing or allowing the death of a child.

All three will appear before magistrates in Guildford today.

They were arrested on Wednesday evening at Gatwick Airport as they disembarked a flight from Dubai.

In a statement, Surrey Police said: “Sara’s mother has been informed of this latest development and is being supported by specialist officers.”

The trio travelled to Pakistan a day before police discovered Sara’s body in her home in Woking on 10 August.

Five of Sara’s siblings, aged between one and 13 years old, also travelled to Pakistan on 9 August with them.

A post-mortem found Sara had suffered “multiple and extensive injuries” over a “sustained and extended” period of time.

Sara Sharif – the 10-year-old girl found dead at her home in Woking – was previously known to authorities, Surrey County Council has said.

Sara was found dead on 10 August, with a post-mortem revealing she had “suffered multiple and extensive injuries”, which were “likely to have been caused over a sustained and extended period of time”.

Police in the UK have identified her father, Urfan Sharif, his partner, Beinash Batool, and Mr Sharif’s brother, Faisal Shahzad Malik, as people they want to speak to as part of a murder investigation.

On Sunday, Surrey County Council said Sara was known to the authority before her death.

“We cannot comment further while the Surrey Safeguarding Children Partnership’s thorough review process is ongoing,” a spokesperson for the authority said.

The council said it was “working tirelessly with our safeguarding partners to gain a full understanding of the situation as quickly as possible”.

On Friday, council leader Tim Oliver said: “This is an incredibly sad situation and our thoughts and deepest condolences are with everyone affected.”

He said the national Child Safeguarding panel had been notified of the death and a multi-agency rapid review was under way, in line with standard process following the death of a child.

He explained: “This rapid review will determine whether a local child safeguarding practice review (LCSPR) is to be undertaken by the Surrey Safeguarding Children Partnership.

“An LCSPR is a statutory process, bringing together partners including the police, health, social care and education to review practice of all agencies involved, organisational structures and learning.”

It comes after police in eastern Pakistan said they were seeking to arrest Mr Sharif in connection with Sara’s death.

According to authorities, Mr Sharif travelled to Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad, with Ms Batool and Mr Malik on 9 August – the day before Sara’s body was found.

Mr Sharif’s family home is in Jhelum, Punjab, around 84 miles from the capital.

Officer Imran Ahmed said police found evidence that Mr Sharif briefly returned to Jhelum, before leaving and going into hiding.

Another officer in Jhelum, Nisar Ahmed, said he and his men visited the village of Kari – where Mr Sharif was born – but learned the family left around 20 years ago and never returned.

There is no formal extradition treaty between the UK and Pakistan.

However, Pakistan has transferred people to the UK in the past, including Piran Ditta Khan, who was extradited to the UK in April in connection with the 2005 killing of PC Sharon Beshenivsky.

The cause of Sara’s death is “still to be established”.

According to UK police, Mr Sharif called 999 from Islamabad on 10 August, expressing a concern for his eldest daughter’s safety – although the exact details of the conversation are unknown.

Sky News has seen the passports and holding plane tickets for Mr Sharif, Ms Batool and Mr Malik.

Eight tickets in total were booked by Sara’s father.

These were for three adults and five children – and paid for by his brother Mr Malik at a cost of around £5,100, according to a travel agent that sold the tickets.

Officers from Surrey Police have remained at the family’s property in Hammond Road in Horsell, a village less than a mile north of Woking town centre.
