Barking girl, 11, donates hair for manufacturing of wigs for child cancer patients
PUBLISHED: 11:11 22 February 2018
A Barking girl has donated locks of her own hair to the Little Princess Trust so they can make wigs for children receiving cancer treatment.
Ella Jones, 11, also raised money through donations to be donated to the charity.
Ella had been growing her hair for over a year to prepare and it had reached a length of over half a metre.
She said: “It is about £300 to £500 to buy a wig to match the boy or girl’s hair colour. So I would like to donate my hair and hopefully it matches a little boy or girls hair out there.
“I am happy to be able to donate my hair even if that means having short hair for some of my cheer leading competitions.”
She had her hair cut at Hotshots in Ripple Road, Barking. The hairdressers did the haircut for free.
Ella has so far raised £180. If you would like to donate visit http://bit.ly/2C905gl.
