I've received news about Angel who's having her 'Big Haircut' today (Wednesday) for a special charity which I'm pleased to share.
What a great story from her 'Just Giving' page.
Angel is having her haircut for the Little Princess Trust on Weds 26th August 2020 at 16:00 at Andrew Williams Hair and Beauty, this will be the first time Angels hair would have been cut since her birth.
This was instigated by Angel who in February 2020 asked if she could have her hair cut short, and she said she wanted to donate her hair to a charity that makes wigs for people undergoing cancer treatment.
We agreed, but then lockdown happened and there were no hairdressers open to,
1) cut her hair, and
2) Because of lockdown, charities were unable to receive hair donations.
Once we knew restrictions were being lifted in July, we contacted the Little Princess Trust who sent us a fund raising pack.
Our family hairdresser, Andrew Williams of Andrew Williams Hair & Beauty will be the stylist cutting our daughters hair for the first time in her life.
Andrew has also helped us out in the past by providing a work placement for our son so he could gain some work experience by having something to add to his CV, to help with David’s career, in what is now Lancashire Police.
David is currently volunteering as a Special Constable also whilst undergoing study with a BA (Hons) Degree in Public Services at Lancaster University with Blackpool and the Fylde University campus, once David has graduated in 2022, he wishes to become a full-time member of Lancashire police.
Please find attached 4 pictures of Angel before tomorrows event for you, we will be taking photos during the event, and after with Angel holding her cut hair ready for donation.
Angel is a shy and reserved person, but taking this in her stride as it’s for charity.
When a child loses their hair to cancer or another condition, we'll be there with a free, real hair wig to help restore their confidence and identity. We won't stop until the research that we fund ends childhood cancer forever. Promise.
Please visit us at www.littleprincesses.org.uk to find out how you can help us give young people back what cancer takes away.
The Trust relies solely on the efforts of enthusiastic community fundraisers. We receive no formal funding. Please help to raise money for us so that we can help more families.
