An 11-year-old girl from Llanelli has had her hair cut for the first time for a very special cause.
Fay Evans decided to have her ‘very long hair’ cut after gaining inspiration from stories she read about the Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides real hair wigs for children and young adults who have suffered hair loss due to cancer treatment or other illnesses.
Her grandmother Tina said: “She decided to have her hair cut a while ago but then she read a lot about the Little Princess Trust and the stories of children suffering with cancer and hair loss and she instantly wanted to donate her hair to help.
“She said that her hair will grow back so didn’t mind having it cut”.
Fay is determined to help as many children as possible. She has raised £187 on her Just Giving page and over £200 in cash donations to date.
There will be a fundraiser evening at Llansaint Village Hall on Friday (Jul 20) with all monies raised going to the charity.
Fay had never had her hair cut apart from in 2017 when she had it trimmed. The hair cut took place at the new Kidwelly Salon J & Co on Thursday (Jul 12). The honours were carried out by Eleni and took roughly an hour.
The Little Princess Trust was launched in 2006 by the parents of Hannah Tarplee, along with help from friends from Hannah’s school, Hereford Cathedral Junior School.
