Car­ing Sarah’s hair do­na­tion

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

A KIND-HEARTED teenager has lopped off her long locks to help chil­dren with can­cer.

Sarah Whitaker, 14, had 12 inches of her hair cut off at Sciz­zor Sis­ters on the Weston.

She then do­nated it to The Lit­tle Princess Trust, which uses the hair to make wigs for chil­dren with can­cer who lose their hair through treat­ment.

Sarah also raised £100 for the char­ity.

Sarah, who goes to Mac­cles­field Acad­emy, was in­spired to make the sac­ri­fice af­ter learn­ing about the char­ity a few years ago.

Her mum He­len Hulme said: “Sarah has al­ways been a very thought­ful girl.

“A few years ago she had hair so long she could sit on it and said she wanted to do­nate it to the char­ity. Un­for­tu­nately that didn’t hap­pen.

“Re­cently the fam­ily lost a close fam­ily friend to can­cer and com­bined with Sarah’s re­cent spell in hos­pi­tal, she was in­spired to give it a try again.

“It was sad see­ing all her lovely hair cut off, but it’s lovely that she wants to do some­thing for other chil­dren.”

Sarah lives on the Weston with her mum and two broth­ers, Daniel, 18, and Ben, 21.
