Jes­sica’s brave cut in aid of char­ity

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Mur­ray Spooner

A kind-hearted teenager from Ruther­glen is set to get her locks chopped off for char­ity.

Jes­sica Cairns, 16, will hope to raise hun­dreds of pounds for the Lit­tle Princess Trust as she gets her hair cut at her Girl Guide Hall on John­stone Drive.

The Stonelaw pupil will be part of a coffee evening to­mor­row, Thurs­day, and has al­ready raised £172 for the cause.

Jes­sica said: “I will get 10 inches cut off on Thurs­day which will leave my hair just above my shoul­ders.

“I’ve raised more than my tar­get of £150 al­ready but any­thing that we can raise would be amaz­ing.

“It is for such a great cause. I wanted to get my hair cut any­way and I thought I would do it for some­thing worth it.

“I thought it was a good idea and I didn’t want my hair to go to waste.

“It is to give the kids some con­fi­dence.

“I’ll do­nate my money and hair to help them.”

Jes­sica’s hair will be pleated into 10-inch locks and cut by her hair­dresser Carol in front of her fel­low Girl Guides.

The teenager will then send her locks and cash to the char­ity that will help make and pay for wigs.

On the coffee evening, there will also be a raf­fle and tombola.

The Lit­tle Princess Trust is a char­ity that pro­vides real hair wigs to chil­dren who suf­fer from hair loss.

Since its in­cep­tion in 2006, the char­ity has helped thou­sands of boys and girls.
