Getting the chop for charity

A teenage Yate resident has had almost 16 inches of hair cut off in support of a national charity that helps children across the UK and Ireland who lose their hair.

17 year old Chloe Hitchings first helped The Little Princess Trust in the autumn of 2015, and pledged that when her hair regrew she would cut it all off again.  Chloe’s hair will be made into wigs for children who have lost hair through illness or treatment.

Chloe’s mum Sarah, who is also a dedicated fund-raiser said, “We are yet again very proud of her for doing this, she is an inspiration to us all.”

Sarah’s fundraising page has raised £800, with money donated split between The Grand Appeal (diabetes unit) in support of her brother who has Type 1 Diabetes, and The British Heart Foundation in memory of her friend Anthony.
