Sandra’s for the chop
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.
