Here at Ledbury Carpets and Interiors, we are very proud of Richie and Jane’s Daughter Sarah who donated her flowing locks to a local charity who strive to provide a little comfort when young children and their families are going through the toughest of times.
The Little Princess Trustprovides real-hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment. The charity, based in Hereford, was launched in 2006 by the parents of Hannah Tarplee, along with help from friends and from Hannah’s school, Hereford Cathedral Junior School.
With such a wonderful reason to donate her hair at Mutu Hairdressing in Leeds, Sarah also set about getting friends and family to donate to the charity on her Just Giving Page.
Before the cut Sarah said:
I’ve been growing my hair out for the past year so On Monday 19th January I can donate a significant amount of it (about 9 inches) to The Little Princess Trust, a wonderful charity who provide real hair wigs for children undergoing treatment for cancer free of charge. Alongside this I’m hoping to raise the £350 needed to have the wig made for a child asap. Thank you in advance for your support and contribution which will make this possible!
They work with specialist suppliers and experienced hairdressers who offer wigs tailored to the individual child’s needs to give the most realistic look and feel, as close as possible to their original hair. The charity strives to put parents/guardians in contact with suppliers as local as possible.
The Little Princess Trust is a children’s cancer charity and their mission is to supply real-hair wigs to children suffering with cancer, for the duration of their treatment. However, in addition they assist children with other conditions which also result in hair loss, the most common being alopecia. This commitment to these children is different. Despite being set up to help children with cancer, the Trust is able to supply children that do not have a cancer diagnosis with one wig. Whilst we are unable to commit to supplying more than one wig to each child, we hope that this gesture will help the family whilst they decide on their long-term plans for dealing with this condition.
Although Sarah donated her hair in Leeds, The Little Princess Trust work with hairdressers all over the country to provide hair for such as great cause.
