The Little Princess Trust will soon be receiving some gorgeous golden locks from Amy Deacon who is donating her waist length blonde hair to the charity.

Amy works for Services for Independent Living (SIL) and colleagues are supporting her efforts by donating money to the Trust, so that the Trust can turn Amy’s hair into a lovely wig, which will be given without cost to a child or young person up to the age of 24, who has lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.

Amy is going for the chop on Monday, but would like to ask for more sponsors, to help the work of the Trust.

Amy said: “It costs an average of £550 to make and fit a wig, they donate around 2,000 wigs each year.  If you can spare any money to support this essential charity and its work it would be greatly appreciated.”

The Little Princess Trust was established in 2006 by the parents of Hannah Tarplee, who was diagnosed with a tumour in 2004. Sadly, Hannah passed away in 2005 but since then thousands of wigs have been created and donated to children and young people who have lost their hair. In 2016, thanks to the huge efforts of fantastic fundraisers and corporate supporters, the Trust was able to start funding pioneering academics and institutions leading the way in researching new and better treatments for all paediatric cancers.

If you would like to sponsor Amy and ensure her hair can soon be the crowning glory of a young person who has lost their own, please either send a donation to or drop into SIL’s offices at 1, Owen Way, Leominster Enterprise Park, HR6 0LA, where there is a collection box in reception.
