Hair today, gone tomorrow!
Kind-hearted Demi gets her hair chopped to support childrens charity
Local girl Demi Lamb had her tresses chopped off to support the Little Princess Trust yesterday.
Demi (14) is a student at Craigroyston High School and she’s planned the event for quite a while. Yesterday was the big day, and Demi’s proud mum Amanda has shared a snip-by-snip photo account!
The Little Princess Trust was launched in 2006 by the parents and friends of Hannah Tarplee and Hannah’s school, Herreford Cathedral Junior School. Hannah was the original ‘Little Princess’. She was diagnosed with having a Wilms tumour and died after a brave battle in 2005.
At that time, finding high quality wigs for children was very difficult and only after a long search was a suitable company eventually found which made a wig for Hannah. She very much enjoyed wearing her wig, particularly on special occasions.
After Hannah passed away, so many kind people offered help, financial and practical. Hannah’s parents, Wendy and Simon decided that the most fitting way to use this help was to launch a charity dedicated to providing specialist real hair children’s wigs. Like so many Little Princesses, Hannah loved her hair and losing it was very traumatic.
Since its inception, working with suppliers all of whom supply beautiful real hair wigs, the charity has helped thousands of children. Now local girl Demi has generously given her hair – and raised an incredible £521 in sponsorship money too – to help the charity to support those little princesses all over the country.
Well done, Demi!
