Hundreds raised along with hair donations

MORE than �600 has been raised for the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.

Five-year-old Lucie Caines and her mum Laura-Beth from Backwell organised for a charity hair cut to take place to raise cash for the charity as well as to gather donations of hair to be made into wigs.

This was held at the Nailsea salon, Iconic, where stylist Kelly Spinks chopped off the locks of six willing donors.

Alana, Bethan and Traci Bullock took part along with Kirstie and Summer Logan, 14-year-old Sarah Little from Nailsea and five-year-old Lucie.

Lucie decided she want to donate eight inches of her blonde hair after seeing images of poorly children.

Her mum said: “I explained to her that the little girl was poorly and it meant all her hair had fallen out and Lucie straight off asked if she could give her some of hers.”
