Cliona takes a cut for char­ity

Girl gives hair to Lit­tle Princess Trust

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Alan Hayes alan.hayes@trin­i­tymir­

SHE had never had so much as a trim in her life, but for Cliona Hen­der­son what felt like the cru­ellest cut was an act of pure kind­ness.

The 11-year-old, from Newdi­gate Road, Hare­field, has be­come the lat­est to join the ranks of girls donat­ing some of their hair to the Lit­tle Princess Trust.

The trust uses the tresses to make wigs for can­cer suf­fer­ers who have lost their hair due to their treat­ments.

Cliona went a step fur­ther and also asked for spon­sor­ship for the char­ity Bliss, which works with pre­ma­ture ba­bies.

She was aim­ing to raise £150, but at the time of go­ing to press her to­tal stood at £206.

“I chose Bliss as my twin brothers were born nearly two months pre­ma­turely and I want to help other ba­bies like them,” said Cliona.

“They are now four and are do­ing very well.”

The hair­dresser who clipped off the locks, Teri Jar­c­zok of TML Hair in Newdi­gate Road, do­nated her fee for cre­at­ing Cliona’s new style to Bliss.
