Inspiring the future

Elsie is Top of the Chops

Elsie is a "Superhairo"

We were all so proud when Elsie made the front page of the Sleaford Standard for her kind-hearted gesture for the charity “The little Princess Trust.” This national charity creates wigs for children who have lost their hair due to treatment for cancer and other illnesses.

Elsie was inspired when watching a TV programme with her mum about a little girl who had lost her hair due to cancer treatment. When her mum explained that children could wear wigs, Elsie said she could have her hair.

Anyone who knows Elsie will know her hair is really long, and she will be having 13 inches cut off.

Wendy Tarplee-Morris, founder to the Little Princess trust, said "We know our wigs help restore confidence and identity of the young recipients, but we can only provide this service thanks to the selfless acts and dedicated fundraising from "superhairoes" like Elsie."

Elsie has raised £705 so far and will have the big chop in half-term. To donate visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/elsie-haircut
