On Christmas Eve when most children are looking forward to receiving gifts, two generous Deeside girls are planning to give their own beautiful long locks to a wig-making charity.
Maddison Rennie (5) and Sophie Baird (7), both Culter School pupils, will go along to Peterculter’s local Hair and Beauty Box at 11am, to have seven inches of their hair cut off to be given to The Little Princess Trust charity, so that other little girls who have perhaps lost their own hair through cancer will get new hair in the form of wigs.
The Little Princess Trust sends all donated hair to a wig-makers in China, who then give the newly-made wigs back to the charity free of charge.
However, the Trust also needs to buy in some ready-made wigs, each costing around £350, so that each of the sick children can get exactly the right wig to boost their confidence.
This means continual fundraising and Madison’s mother, Donna, hopes that other people will help by sending donations to her fundraising page at www.justgiving.com/Donna-Rennie1.
Donna said: “Both girls are so excited. A lot of kind people have been donating.
Both parents (she and Sophie’s mum) are so proud of the girls, at such a young age for them to think of others. Thanks for your support.”
