Hair today, gone tomorrow

On Friday October 27, Niamh Rush, aged 9, made the brave and generous decision to donate hair to the Little Princess Trust.

The charity provides real-hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses.

The donation was registered with the money raising website justgiving.com, with the grand total currently standing at £806, 403% over the £200 target.

Speaking of the event Niamh said "I was excited and nervous having it chopped today but very proud of how I am going to make other children happier"

Niamh visited her Grandma's hairdressing salon, Jayne Rush Hairdressing, Kirton, to have her pony tail tail cut. In attendance, the whole family was joined by a very proud Grandad, The Mayor of Boston, Cllr Brian Rush. Boston Mayoress Jane Rush carefull washed, dryed, measured, plaited and cut Niamh hair.

Cllr Rush spoke of his grandaughters donation "it's so nice to see children sharing with children who are less fortunate"


Financial donations can still be made this week via the Justgiving.com page: http://bit.ly/2z36reP
