A TEENAGER will have her long hair cut off to help children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or illness.

A TEENAGER will have her long hair cut off to help children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or illness.

After seeing her mum, Sarah Hitchings, fund raising for charity for the past five years, 14-year-old Chloe decided she should also get involved.

So she will be joining in an event called The Big Shaun, which Sarah has organised for Sunday, October 4, in The George Hotel, Chipping Sodbury, from 3pm.

Sarah, of Yate, said: “I am very proud of her for doing this. It was a very hard choice to make but her hair will grow back eventually.

“Ever since she was small, Chloe has had long hair. She has thought long and hard about it and has decided to have it cut of for the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair.”

Local hairdresser Shaun Burgham-Wilson will be brandishing the clippers and scissors at the haircut event, which will raise money overall for the Bristol children’s cancer unit.

People have been invited to be sponsored to lose their locks, although under-18s will need permission from a parent or carer. 

Sponsor forms are available by emailing s.hitchings@hotmail.co.uk
