Louie is your typical 15 year old youth!
For a while he has wanted to do something to make a difference. After watching an advert on tv for Brave The Shave he knew what he wanted to do! He then decided he wanted to donate his hair! His mum, Julie Barclay researched various charities and The Little Princess trust seemed perfect.
Having lost family and friends to C this is Louies way of doing something positive.
Julie told us:
This is a smaller charity who make wigs for young people going through various treatments and illnesses, including cancer!
As we had lost family and friends to this disease Louie decided he would like to help.
He has now got his hair to over 7 inches, which he is also donating, and decided it would be a great way to celebrate his 16th birthday.
Louie attends Manor school and had to get special permission to keep the hair he had already grown!
Today we went to make final arrangements at The Barber Shop and my husband thought on the off chance the locals may donate.
On Saturday I was in Pretty Little Things and Yvonne made a donation and also put a photo up.
I didn’t think to ask anyone else.
My husband came home and I just couldn’t believe how generous, in this climate, that the independent stores were.
Webster’s Florist, Zee from William H Brown, Krumbs, Jade from Krumbs (her own donation), Raunds Hardware, SK Minimart and of course Pretty Little Things.
I just couldn’t believe the kindness shown to a nearly 16 year old who they don’t know and didn’t have to. My heartfelt thanks.”
