An eight year old Deeside girl will be giving up some of her golden locks to help make wigs for children suffering from hair loss.
Primary four Midmar pupil Charlotte Reynolds decided recently that she would like short hair and thought she could achieve something special for other children suffering from serious illnesses at the same time.
It will prove a double boost for her chosen charity- The Little Princess Trust- as she is also receiving sponsorship for undertaking the cut at an upcoming school assembly.
Charlotte, who has already raised £150 on her virginmoneygiving web page, said: “On February 13 Morag Stewart (local stylist and Midmar resident) will be cutting my hair, and my plait will be donated to the Little Princess Trust so that children who have lost their hair can have a wig made with real hair. My family and I want children with cancer to feel as beautiful and strong on the outside as they are on the inside. If my hair can help them to do so, that makes me happy.
“It costs The Little Princess Trust approximately £350 to provide a wig, free of charge, to children in need. To buy the wigs on their own would cost the families approximately £2,000!”
Pop star Jessie J famously shaved her head for the trust.
