11 kind-hearted Oban girls do­nate their hair to Lit­tle Princess char­ity

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

A group of 11 girls from Oban do­nated a large sec­tion of their hair to the Lit­tle Princess Trust in or­der to make wigs for those suf­fer­ing from hair loss.

The young­sters made their way to the Stu­dio Hair and Beauty in Oban, where they re­ceived a free hair­cut.

The event was or­gan­ised by Leigh Laird Mac­niven af­ter her daugh­ter, Tay­lor, wanted to do­nate her hair.

She said: ‘ Tay­lor wanted to send her hair to the Lit­tle Princess Trust and I put feel­ers out to see if any­one wanted to do­nate their hair and I got a great re­sponse back. There’s a girl who has got a wig. Tay­lor could see how happy and more confident she was be­cause of that. Her friend also wanted to do it, and I thought that’s two, so I put it on Face­book and what an amaz­ing re­sponse I got. I couldn’t believe it.’

Su­san Simp­son’s two daugh­ters, Charis and Ni­amh, both do­nated their hair. The Ben­der­loch mum said: ‘ We have a friend whose daugh­ter had neu­rob­las­toma. It was a re­ally ag­gres­sive cancer, so she wanted to give some­thing back to chil­dren who have gone through it. They were talking about this event at school all week. Their teach­ers have been re­ally sup­port­ive. It’s good for kids to re­alise what other young folk are go­ing through – that they have these bat­tles. It’s good for them to give some­thing back.’
