Jade hopes to make dif­fer­ence

Wishaw Press - - SAY IT WITH FLOWERS -

A kind-hearted Harthill girl is do­nat­ing her hair to char­ity af­ter be­ing in­spired by the vil­lage’s can­cer sup­port group.

Alexan­der Pe­den PS pupil Jade Mil­li­gan is grow­ing her hair un­til Jan­uary when she will get it all lopped off for the Lit­tle Princesstrust, who pro­vide hair for young­sters bat­tling can­cer.

And the de­ter­mined eight-year-old is also rais­ing money in the process for the Harthill Can­cer Sup­port Group, which she has be­gun vol­un­teer­ing with along­side her gran.

Jade’s mum Claire Dolan ex­plained:“her big cousin did the same last year and I think that made her mind up to do it.

“She’s also been go­ing up to the Can­cer Sup­port Group with her gran so I think that’s in­spired her to help in any way she can.

“We’re so proud of her. She’s ex­cited now but I’m sure she’ll get a wee bit ner­vous nearer the time! She’s al­ready raised £260 and will hope­fully build that up even more un­til Jan­uary.”

As well as the sup­port from the can­cer group, Jade’s sib­lings Zac and Eva-lilly are be­hind her.
