Solihull youngster has hair cut for Little Princess Trust

Solihull Editorial 18th Jan, 2022   0

A KIND-HEARTED youngster has had her long locks chopped off to raise funds for the Little Princess Trust.

Alice Cassidy decided she wanted to donate 13-inches of hair to the charity so other poorly children could have a full head of hair.

When she was having her hair cut her mum, Grace, said Alice became very tearful because she knew her hair was going somewhere nice.

The Little Princess Trust makes real hair wigs for children suffering with hair loss, particularly cancer patients.

It relies on donations of hair to do this as well as cash donations which allows it to buy wigs and also fund research into cancer and possible cures.

The five-year-old from Shirley smashed her original fundraising target of £100 and has raised £600 so far.

Grace said: “Alice has had very long, thick hair and it got to a point where she didn’t want it washed, brushed or cut.

“We had spoken to her about donating her hair and one day she came out and asked if she could do it.

“Me and her dad are very proud of her for doing something so lovely.”
