A HEREFORD charity has received royal recognition in the form of a personal donation.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, gave an undisclosed sum to help The Little Princess Trust continue its vital work.

The charity found out about the donation when a letter was sent to its offices on Broad Street last week.

The Little Princess Trust gives real hair wigs to children and young people up to the age of 24 who have lost their own hair due to cancer and other conditions.

It also funds research into finding kinder, less toxic treatments for childhood cancers.
