Kind Isabella chops locks for children’s charity
A NINE-YEAR-OLD with golden hair flowing down her back has had it all cut off for charity.
Isabella Jackson’s classmates at Gawsworth Primary School watched on as she had 14 inches cut off in aid of the Little Princess Trust.
Isabella, along with the support of her classmates who took part in a non-school uniform day, has raised almost £1,000 for the charity.
Her hair will go on to create a wig for a child who has lost their hair through chemotherapy treatment and the money will be used to support children with cancer.
Isabella’s mum Cathy Jackson said: “It is something (Isabella) has wanted to do for a while.
“Just before Christmas her new school project was to research and write a project about a charity of their choice.
“Isabella chose The Little Princess Trust and decided to put her thoughts into action spurred on by her class assignment.
“She is a lovely warm hearted caring little girl and wants to give something that will make a child happier during a difficult time.”
Isabella’s hair was cut by David Gosling of David of Duke Street Hair Salon in front of the whole school, with the final snip met with a rapturous applause from the staff and children.
Headteacher Michael Shaw, who awarded Isabella with the Gawsworth School Peers Certificate for Dedication to Charity, said “‘We are overwhelmed with Isabella’s generosity and compassion in giving her hair to this very worthy cause. She has raised an incredible amount of money and we are immensely proud of her.”
Isabella has smashed her original fundraising target of £500 and has raised a massive £958 for the charity.
This includes a £220 donation from her classmates who raised their funds with a non-uniform day.
