Mum’s dra­matic hair cut for can­cer chil­dren

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A KIND­HEARTED mum has lopped off her long locks to help chil­dren with can­cer.

Natalie Kennedy had 12 inches of her hair cut off to be made into wigs for the Lit­tle Princess Trust.

The 31-year-old film­maker is doc­u­ment­ing her ex­pe­ri­ence in a bid to raise aware­ness of the char­ity which helps chil­dren who lose their hair dur­ing can­cer treat­ment.

Natalie, who lives in the town cen­tre with her four-year-old son Rain, is also hop­ing to raise money for the char­ity with the big cut.

She said: “I have had long hair for most of my life and at the mo­ment it is re­ally long, half way down my back.

“It has been hard for me to have it all cut off. It was a big shock to me and peo­ple I know but that is a small sac­ri­fice to help chil­dren liv­ing with can­cer.”

Natalie, who is study­ing an MA in TV drama pro­duc­tion, was in­spired to do some­thing af­ter a friend’s child died of can­cer.

She then wrote and di­rected a play called Par­ents With­out Chil­dren. Dur­ing her re­search she came across the Lit­tle Princess Trust.
