More than sixty Hereford locals took part in a charity quiz night which was organised by Specsavers in the town and raised £555 for the Little Princess Trust.
Fourteen teams took part in the general knowledge quiz at The Welsh Club with each made up of a maximum of six people. Everyone paid £6 to take part which included food on the night. All the money raised was donated to the charity that provides real hair wigs for youngsters who have lost their own hair during cancer treatment.
A word from the director
‘It was a great night and we’re delighted to have raised so much money for the Little Princess Trust,’ said store director Nialle Smith. ‘Congratulations to the winning team and a big thank you to the local community for their support with this event as they made it the success that it was.’
As a result of treatment for cancer, most children will suffer hair loss as a side effect. Some boys and girls cope remarkably well but, for others, this can be very upsetting. The Little Princess Trust works with specialist suppliers and experienced hairdressers who offer wigs tailored to the individual child’s needs to give the most realistic look and feel, as close as possible to their original hair.
