Ni­cola gets the chop chop in aid of char­ity

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Will Hen­shaw

It’s a case of hair to­day gone to­mor­row for Cam­bus­lang woman Ni­cola Sam­son who got her locks chopped off for char­ity.

Half­way girl Ni­cola got 11 inches of her hair cut off for the Lit­tle Princess Trust, a char­ity who pro­vides wigs and hair pieces for chil­dren who suf­fer hair loss due to can­cer treat­ment.

Ni­cola’s hair will by made into a wig for a child and she’s also rais­ing money for the cause.

Ni­cola, who works in the City Cham­bers in Glas­gow City Cen­tre, got the chop at the An­der­son Hair Sa­lon in Glas­gow yesterday (Tues­day, Septem­ber 1)

And although it was a nerve wrack­ing pro­ce­dure, Ni­cola is pleased with the re­sult.

The Cathkin High pupil said: “My hair is what I’m most con­fi­dent about and I wanted to give it to help a child out who has lost theirs.

“I made the very big de­ci­sion to cut my long hair to my col­lar bone, to give a child their sparkle back.

“I’d like to thank Keith An­der­son, Sa­lon Di­rec­tor of An­der­son Hair Sa­lon, who very kindly gave me a com­pli­men­tary hair cut, they did a great job! I felt like I was be­ing pam­pered!”

She added: “I heard about what the Lit­tle Princess Trust do, I was very moved by this as my hair pro­vides me con­fi­dence.

“I could un­der­stand how hard it would be for the chil­dren to lose their hair due to can­cer treat­ments or alope­cia.”

Ni­cola also runs an online busi­ness called “Ni­cola’s Lit­tle Shop of Mem­o­ries” and last month for ev­ery item bought she do­nated an ex­tra pound to the Lit­tle Princess Trust.

Ni­cola has set a fundrais­ing tar­get of £350. To do­nate visit https://www.just­giv­ing.com/Ni­co­laSam­son.
