BIRCHWOOD High School pupil Amy Groves had her long hair cut short – to help other children undergoing treatment for cancer to feel beautiful again.
Amy has always worn her hair long, so the decision was not an easy one.
But reading an article on hair donation made her think about how she would feel if she lost her hair and how unhappy she would feel at a time when she was at her most vulnerable.
So she had her locks cut short and donated her hair to the Princess Trust, who make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to radical lifesaving treatments for cancer and other conditions.
To make a wig costs between £350 and £500 so donating hair is not the end of the story. Amy has set up a Just Giving page, which can be found at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sarah-groves4?
She would really appreciate any support to her fundraising to help the Princess Trust to make a wig from her hair and help a poorly child to feel better again.
