Sisters shed their locks to help out cancer kids
£1500 raised for charity
Two kind hearted sisters who were inspired by a classmate to cut their hair for charity have raised an impressive £1500.
Aimee (7) and Sophie (9) Gallagher posted 24 inches of their locks to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides real hair wigs to children who suffer from hair loss.
The girls, who attend St Anthony’s Primary school in Rutherglen, were inspired to donate their hair after Aimee’s classmate, Emily Gormley (7) cut her own and raised £625 for the charity.
Proud mum Rhona Gallagher also joined the girls by getting her own locks chopped and was overwhelmed by the amount her children had managed to raise.
She said: “The kids were ecstatic. £1500 to a child is huge.
“They were thrilled to bits and they even got a DVD from the Little Princess Trust that showed them where their hair and money was going.
“I’m extremely proud of them and we are thankful for all the support.
“The girls love their new look. It’s easier to wash and they’re chuffed to bits.
“All went well on the day. The money will go towards five new wigs and their hair will be made into wigs as well.”
The girls, who had originally aimed to raise at least £350 for the charity, had their hair cut off by Rhona’s cousin, Angela Murphy, at Broomfields hairdressers in Glasgow.
