The lovely Victoria, our franchisee from Devon, has recently changed her appearance. Children in Victoria's classes are used to seeing her long, flowing locks tied back in a plait, out of the way for lots of pretending!
As Victoria felt she would like her hair a bit shorter, she researched donating her hair to charity, as a friend had done in 2015. The Little Princess Trust provides wigs and hair pieces to children who suffer hair loss and accept donations of hair from a minimum of 7 inches in length.
So, following a visit to the hairdresser last week, Victoria has donated 11 inches of her hair! She says, "it is a fair bit shorter than I had originally intended, but I don't regret it one bit. My strange reflection in the mirror and cold neck are nothing in comparison to how it must feel to suffer from hair loss at such a young age, never mind dealing with any medical battles alongside it."
