Car­ing Sa­mara’s long lock chop for char­ity

The Oban Times - - News -

A PUPIL from St Columba’s Pri­mary School, Fort Wil­liam, has raised al­most £200 af­ter cut­ting off her long locks for char­ity.

Sa­mara McCor­mack, pri­mary six, came up with the idea of hav­ing her long hair cut short to help raise money for two Lochaber chil­dren who are cur­rently un­der­go­ing treat­ment in hos­pi­tal in Glas­gow – Ryan White­ford and Emily Campbell.

Sa­mara or­gan­ised a spon­sor sheet and got staff of the school, her fam­ily and friends to spon­sor her, rais­ing £195 for the two chil­dren.

Head teacher at St Columba’s Pri­mary School, Vi­o­let Smith, said: ‘ We were hav­ing a dis­cus­sion in school about help­ing oth­ers. Sa­mara also de­cided to do­nate her cut hair to the Lit­tle Princess Trust, a char­ity that make wigs for chil­dren who have suf­fered hair loss through treat­ment for can­cer. We are all very proud of Sa­mara. She is a very car­ing and con­sid­er­ate.’
