San­dra’s for the chop

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Ross Thom­son

It’s a case of hair to­day gone to­mor­row for one Wishaw woman.

San­dra Foy has grown her long black locks for the past 15 years but has de­cided to get her hair chopped for char­ity.

Les Hoe y ’ s DreamMaker Foun­da­tion will ben­e­fit from the spon­sored cut with the foun­da­tion very close to San­dra’s heart thanks to the work Les and the team have done with her 17-year-old son Shaun.

San­dra, who lives in Colt­ness, said: “Shaun was di­ag­nosed with chronic re­gional pain syn­drome ( CRPS) which af­fects his abil­ity to walk as his nerve end­ings tell his brain they aren’t work­ing.

“Shaun’s a big box­ing fan and Les ar­ranged for him to meet Sugar Ray Leonard. He also had the chance to meet Conor McGre­gor as well.

“And Shaun’s a big Mother­well fan and he got the op­por­tu­nity to meet the play­ers and have lunch with them.

“I haven’t done any kind of fundrais­ing for DreamMaker be­fore. I vol­un­teer when I can at events like the Christ­mas party and when they are hav­ing a bucket col­lec­tion. It’s nice to give some­thing back.”

San­dra’s big hair­cut will take place in early April – with Les the one to make the chop.

The event will shown live on Face­book with San­dra’s hair go­ing to the Lit­tle Princess Trust who pro­vide real hair wigs to chil­dren and young adults up to the age of 24 who have lost their hair due to can­cer treat­ment and other ill­nesses.
