Two school pals are taking part in a sponsored haricut after they decided that they wanted to donate their locks to charity.
Friends Freya Gregory and Katy Brown returned home from school one day saying they felt it wasn’t fair that they had lovely long hair and other children didn’t have any.
Freya, of Elm Drive, Chinnor, and seven-year-old Katy of Kingston Blount, will donate their tresses to the Little Princess Trust, which provides free wigs to children who are suffering from cancer and have lost their hair through treatment.
Freya’s mum Lee-Ann, 31, said: “I’m so proud of her because she’s so always been so precious about her hair. She wants to be like Rapunzel.”
Lee-Ann has arranged for the sponsored hair cut to take place at The Wheatsheaf in Oakley Road, Chinnor, on Saturday, May 3. Redhead Katy won’t be able to make it on the day but will have her locks lopped off soon after. The St Andrews Primary School pupils aim to raise £400 altogether, and have gathered more than £100 so far.
Lee-Ann has organised a raffle and is selling tickets in the run up to the day. If you’d like to buy some, call Lee-Ann on 07808 890904. To donate online, visit www.justgiving.com/lee-ann-gregory.
