Aoife loses her unique dreadlocks for charity
BRAY STUDENT Aoife ni Mhurchu is to cut off her beloved dreadlocks to raise money for charity.
For the past four years the final year UCD English and French student has worn her hair in long dreadlocks and many of her friends have never known her any other way.
Come the New Year they may not recognise her as, if she doesn’t chicken out, she will by then have had her locks cut off.
‘This is not a head shave,’ said Aoife ‘I’d be far too scared for that! Anyone that knows me will understand this is a big deal. I’ll be having it cut very short by a close friend of mine who is a hairdresser and the only one I’m trusting with this ordeal!’
The money Aoife raises will be split between two causes close to Aoife’s heart both of them to do with children - the international children’s development organisation Plan Ireland and ’Les Zarmalouloux’, a project of five clowns and street artists who are going to cycle around the world (starting next September) to bring laughter to children in Asia, South America and Africa while raising awareness about the environment.
