is how much it costs for The Little Princess Trust to make and supply a real hair wig for a child or young person with cancer, for the duration of their treatment.
This is why, in addition to hair donations, the charity relies on fundraising support to help continue their valuable work.
At the beginning of this week, I donated 9 inches of hair to The Little Princess Trust, and have set up a Justgiving page with a target of £550, to help ensure at least one child benefits from a real hair wig as they navigate what is undoubtedly one of the most distressing and difficult times of life.
When a parent first contacts Official Little Princess Trust with a wig request, the charity works with wigmakers and LPT-approved salons in order to try and have a suitable wig ready before the child’s original hair is lost due to chemotherapy.
Together with the stylist, the wigs are fitted and styled to the individual child, and this process is provided completely free of charge to the parent/child, leaving no question as to just how important the work of Official Little Princess Trust really is to children affected by cancer, and their families.
If you would like to offer support in helping me reach my £550 target, the Justgiving link can be found here.
