Girl Donates Hair To Make Wigs For Kids With Cancer


7:48am 28th October 2014

A 13 year old Bridport girl is donating her hair to make wigs for children with cancer.

Ella-May Cauldwell who's a student at Colfox school, is sending her hair, which measures over one metre in length, to the Little Princess Trust.

The Trust makes real hair wigs for children who've suffered from illnesses resulting in hair loss.  

Ella-May explains what drew her to the idea, "We actually watched a video of a girl about my age who had cancer and she had received a real hair wig from the Little Princess Trust, and I thought I would like to do that from someone."

She continued to say she's also raising money for the Trust, "It costs them about £350 to make a wig. My Mum's sent up a Just Giving page and I've raised £335 so far on there, and I went round with a sponsor form as well and I've raised £113, and my dad has gone round with a sponsor form, and we've put sonation forms out, and we'll be collecting on the night."

Ella-May will be getting her hair cut at 6.30pm tonight (28th October) in Bridport's Beau Hairdressing.
