A brave year 7 pupil at Rendcomb College has had her hair chopped off for charity. Emaleigh Holder decided to have her locks cut to raise funds for the Little Princess Trust, who make real-hair wigs for children who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
The 12 year old wanted to do something to raise money for a cancer charity after the death of a family friend. Having nearly 16 inches cut off, Emaleigh raised a grand total of £1,222 for the charity.
Headmaster at Rendcomb College, Rob Jones, said: “I am very proud of Emaleigh; she has sought selflessly to make a poorly child’s life better with her donation. She is a role model to her peers and I hope her act of kindness will inspire others to follow in her footsteps by supporting a cause close to their hearts.”
The Little Princess Trust hit the headlines recently after receiving a high profile hair donation from One Direction’s Harry Styles who joined their #hairtospare campaign.
