A hair cut to help others

16 November 2020  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

Grace Dashwood decided to have her long hair cut to help make wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other conditions. The Year 8 student is no stranger to the process, as this is the second time she has donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust.

Grace said: “The Little Princess Trust provides free human hair wigs to children who are suffering with health conditions that result in them losing their hair.  When I donated my hair the first time I also raised £300 for the charity. This time, I decided just to give my hair as I know that it is a difficult time for many people at the moment.”

Dani Manning, Grace’s tutor, said: “Grace should be so proud of herself for making this kind and generous gesture, especially at a time when people need kindness and generosity the most. Her compassion for others sets a shining example to her peers.”

Grace has donated an incredible 10 ½ inches of hair, having grown her hair to the bottom of her back.  Well done Grace for doing this, not just once but twice.
