Jessica’s brave cut in aid of charity
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.
