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