Mum’s dramatic hair cut for cancer children
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.
