Hair amaz­ing is that!

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

In what must go down as one of those amaz­ing co­in­ci­dences, two girls from Wer­ring­ton, both called Gra­cie, de­cided to wave good­bye to their locks to raise money for char­ity within a few days of each.

Gra­cie Hales (7), pic­tured left, had her hair chopped off at Seren­ity Loves in Oun­dle Road as she reached her goal of rais­ing £350 for the East Anglian Air Am­bu­lance. Mum Vic­to­ria said: “For a seven-year-old to choose to do this is a big thing. I’m beam­ing with pride.”

Gra­cie Mor­ris (8) had her hair cut at home and has now raised nearly £400 for the Lit­tle Princess Trust, with both girls do­nat­ing their hair to the char­ity which pro­vides wigs for chil­dren suf­fer­ing from can­cer. Mum Shel­ley said: “I’m in­cred­i­bly proud. For me it’s so self­less.”
