Little Princess Laila is hailed an inspiration to all
A seven-year-old Cambuslang girl has been hailed an inspiration after cutting her long hair off for charity.
Laila Kadegis wanted to do something to help the Little Princess Trust, who make wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer.
After seeing another young girl do her bit, and speaking to her mum, Lynda, The Loch Primary pupil was so inspired to help out.
She also decided she wanted to raise the £ 50 that it costs to turn donated hair into a wig, so set up a Just Giving page which has already raised £225.
Lynda is a Weight Watchers leader at King’s Park Church and some members have also donated while the post office in Cathkin has started a collection.
Laila’s hair was cut by Reformer Weight Watchers columnist, Fiona Pediani, who is also a hairdresser, while her friend, Amanda Hemphill, took photos of every stage of the chop.
Explaining how they decided to do their bit, Lynda said: “Whilst browsing online, I came across the Little Princess Trust.
“I told Laila about it, and how sick wee girls lose their hair.
“She got quite upset, and told me every little girl deserves to feel beautiful especially if they are poorly.”
The Little Princess Trust was launched in 2006 by the parents of a little girl who died from cancer.
Since its inception, the charity has now helped thousands of boys and girls.
