Hair today, gone tomorrow ... Sam's charity crop
Published on: 28 Jul 2017
TEN-YEAR-OLD Sam Dalgleish wanted to do something to help children with cancer after losing her cousin Rebecca, 17, to the disease a year ago.
Sam, a pupil at Staple Hill Primary School, decided to have her long locks cut off so she could donate them to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children undergoing treatment.
She sought sponsorship to raise the £350 that’s the average price of getting a child’s wig made - and has managed to bring in more than double that amount.
Sam had the haircut at Tooshays salon in Staple Hill during the last week of the school summer term.
Her mum Janet said: “Sam is really happy with how much money she has raised, as well as her new hair cut. She said that she hopes it inspires other people to donate their hair as well.
“The school has been great and are helping her raise funds - we booked her hair cut for the last week of school so that everyone can see she cut it off!”
