Kirsty waves goodbye to her hair for children's cancer charity

Solihull Editorial 20th May, 2015 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

A KIND-HEARTED Solihull woman has donated her head of hair to a charity which provides wigs for children being treated for cancer – and raised £6,000 for the good cause in the process.

Kirsty Hall had her head shaved at Blossomfield Club as part of a fund-raising jamboree for the Little Princess Trust.

Kirsty – who has been growing her hair for the last two-and-half years – smashed her fundraising target of £2,000, gathering an impressive £6,000.

Her largest single donation was £1,500 from Jaguar Land Rover.

Little Princess Trust Charity Manager, Monica Glass said: “Everyone is so very grateful to Kirsty for all that she has done to support the Trust.

“To have raised so much and to have donated her hair by shaving her head, is both amazing and brave.

“The charity would like to extend grateful thanks to Jaguar Land Rover for their very generous support as well.

“This contribution, plus those from Kirsty’s other kind supporters, means that many more children will be provided with the real hair wigs that they deserve.

“Thanks to Kirsty’s enthusiasm, you are all to be congratulated.”

The Blossomfield fundraiser kicked off with a family fun day, fancy dress competition, barbecue and raffle, and culminated in a silent auction, disco and Kirsty’s epic head shave.

Kirsty is still accepting donations via her fundraising webpage:
