Duo take the chop for can­cer cause

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS -

IT was a case of hair to­day gone to­mor­row for best bud­dies Es­ther Wain and Emily Nai­smith who have had their lus­cious locks lopped off to raise over £1,000 for char­ity.

The two King’s Girls’ Di­vi­sion pupils went to Toni and Guy’s on Mill Street to do­nate two feet of beau­ti­ful healthy auburn and sandy blonde hair for the Lit­tle Princesses Trust char­ity, which makes wigs for chil­dren with can­cer.

Both the glam­orous girls had been grow­ing their hair for over five years and never had any­thing but a tidy and trim since they be­came friends in King’s Girls.

Es­ther, 16, from Bosley, who has just com­pleted 10 GCSEs, dreamed up the idea in mem­ory of her grandma Mary, whose life was cut short by can­cer.

She said be­fore the grand snip: “I’ve been wait­ing to do this for three years and must ad­mit I am a lit­tle ner­vous.”

Af­ter the locks had been cut, tied up in pony tails and sent off to the char­ity, Es­ther said: “Hair is very im­por­tant to a girl and makes you feel spe­cial, but I want some­one else who is hav­ing a tough time to feel spe­cial too. My hair will grow.”

Her great friend Emily, from Wilm­slow, had the idea to team up with Es­ther for the event.
