Mrs Edwards Hair Chop for Little Princess Trust

 The Little Princess Trust

Mrs Edwards Hair Donation

By Daniella

On Thursday 14th January, Mrs Edwards (One of the TA’s from the school) donated 17cm of her hair to a charity called The Little Princess trust. It is a charity for both boys and girls who are going through their cancer treatment  which causes hair loss. This charity makes wigs from real hair instead of itchy artificial ones.
         

The charity was originally set up by Hannah Tarplee’s parents. Hannah Tarplee is a girl who had to go through cancer  treatment. She was quite sad and miserable so her parents thought it would be a good idea, to save money for a trip around the world, to cheer her up. So her friends gave her money and her family saved their money. Unfortunately, Hannah passed away in 2005 but because they had lots of money left they didn’t know what to do with it so they started this charity.

Mrs Edwards got her hair cut by another TA called Mrs Corbin, who is a hairdresser, but before that Mr Duffy messed around pretending to cut her hair off with garden shears. Phase two enjoyed the laugh. Mrs Corbin plaited her hair then snipped her hair off and now it is ready to be sent to the factory.

On Thursday the 14th January, Mrs Edwards, one of the staff from Sevenoaks Primary School, donated 17cm of her hair to the Little Princess Trust. The Little Princess Trust is a charity for cancer, where you can donate your hair to make proper comfortable wigs, instead of artificial wigs, for children going through their cancer treatment.

This charity started in 2005 all because of a little girl named Hannah Tarplee. Hannah had cancer and her parents couldn't afford a proper wig. So to cheer Hannah up, her friends and family saved their money so that she could travel around the world. Unfortunately, Hannah passed away before she had the chance. So her parents  started the Little Princess Trust, as they had lots of money left.

Mrs Corbin, a TA at Sevenoaks Primary as well as a hairdresser, cut off Mrs Edwards’s hair in phase two assembly. Phase two enjoyed a laugh when Mr Duffy, our head teacher, was about to chop of Mrs Edwards’s hair with garden shears! Everyone thought that Mrs Corbin would just do one large chop, but in fact, it took a few minutes to cut it all off! Mrs Edwards’s hair was long enough to provide two wigs, and everyone, including the staff were very proud of her.
