Go­ing chop­ping at su­per­mar­ket

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - INTIMATIONS -

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
