More Grantham princesses chop off their locks for charity
Three more schoolgirls have had their hair cut for a charity that makes wigs for children with cancer.
Taylah Emms, 10, Jasmine Bushell, nine, and seven-year-old Olivia Addlington, have all had their hair cut for the Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides real hair wigs for child cancer sufferers.
Olivia, who is in Year 2 at Little Gonerby Infant School, had her waist-length hair cut for the first time on her seventh birthday last month.
Proud mum Ania, said: “We told Olivia about the trust and she immediately said that she wanted to donate her hair for the poorly children who lost their hair."
“I was worried that she might change her mind, as she has never had her hair cut and would call herself Rapunzel, but she did it with a massive smile on her face.”
Nine-year-old Jasmine Bushell, a pupil at Cliffedale Primary school, has wanted to get her hair cut for the past year but after hearing about the trust, she decided to wait for her hair to grow even longer and got it cut last month.
Her mum Ann said: “I did ask her about 100 times on the day as it can’t be stuck back on. But she was adamant.”
Taylah Emms, 10, a pupil at Belmont primary school got her hairdresser mum to cut her hair off in February.
Mum, Clare Harrison, said: “I was reluctant but it was for something that she felt very passionate about. I am very proud.”
Charity manager Monica Glass from Princess Trust said: “It is wonderful to hear about three more fantastic young people who have all supported The Little Princess Trust.
"Thank you, Olivia, for your beautiful 12 inches of hair and for raising £200. Jasmine - who had the longest hair in her class - generously cut it off and donated it and 10-year old Taylah asked her hairdresser mum to send us her lovely locks in February.
"We are so very grateful to you all for helping us help young people in need. Your donations have a huge impact on their lives and we couldn’t provide our service without the generosity of people like Olivia, Jasmine and Taylah.”
