On Friday 3rd February Jasmine Craddock, a year 10 student in Wilverley house at Noadswood had 10” cut off her hair and donated it to the Little Princess Trust. The charity who give wigs made of real hair free of charge to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses. The local salon in Dibden Purlieu, Ann Torrance, kindly did this free of charge and re-styled it for her.
Not only did Jasmine have her hair cut and 10” cut off her hair for the Little Princess Trust but she wanted to raise funds for the charity, so she asked friends, family and teachers at Noadswood to sponsor her. She wanted to do this as every wig for a child costs £300-400 per wig to make, even though the hair is donated free of charge.
Jasmine also set up a Just Giving page for Cancer Research UK.
Jasmine said “I have lost family members through cancer and I have a family member receiving chemotherapy currently, so these are two causes that I feel very strongly about. The thought of children and adults going through this terrible time prompted me to raise money in this way for both charities”.
On last count, Jasmine had raised £128 for Little Princess Trust and £133 for Cancer Research UK.
