Five generous girls at Salterford House School have all donated their long-grown locks this summer to The Little Princess Trust, to help children suffering with cancer restore their confidence and identity.
In early July, KH Hair in Arnold cut a total of 256 inches of hair off the girls, which will now be sent to the charity to use.
“We want to give children who do not have hair due to cancer treatment, a chance to feel happy and more confident about the way they look,” said the girls. “Most of us know a member of family or a friend who has suffered from cancer – this is our little way of helping them. We are really pleased to help another child feel better at a difficult time.”
In addition to donating their hair, the girls have also raised over £2100 for the charity. It costs the charity £550 on average to make donated real hair into a new wig for a child and £150 for a wig fitting.
