Going chopping at supermarket
There was more than cut prices in a Dumfries supermarket on Friday – as a youngster gave up a huge chunk of her long locks for charity.
Emma Halliday – who had never had a haircut before – sacrificed a significant portion of her 51-inch tresses for two worthy causes.
The S1 Dumfries Academy pupil had her hair cut by Emma Gray in front of shoppers at Morrisons.
And she is delighted with all the donations which have seen her raise £750.
Her cut hair has been sent off to become wigs for children with cancer through the Little PrincessTrust.
And £700 will go to Jackson’s Fight which is a huge community effort to raise £20,000 to get Jackson Geddes specialist treatment at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
The 15-year-old has the developmental disorder Wolf Hirschhorn Syndrome.
Emma’s dad, Brian, said:“We are really proud of her.”
The haircut was done during childhood cancer awareness month with staff and customers at Morrisons raising funds for the children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
Emma is donating £50 from her fundraising to that cause. Bernadette and Brian Emma with her sister Chloe and parents
