An employee at Specsavers in Glasgow Forge will take the chop in aid of The Little Princess Trust. Kayleigh, 30, has been working at the store for four years and often raises money for charity.

For her latest fundraising activity, she has chosen to support two charities – The Little Princess Trust and Stand Up to Cancer.

About the charities 

The Little Princess Trust offers children and young people, 24 and under, that have lost hair due to cancer treatments and other illnesses wigs free of charge. Stand Up to Cancer is a charity which puts all donations towards life-saving research.

Kayleigh has chosen a charity that is close to home, she said: ‘There was never any doubt in my mind that I was going to cut my hair. A few family members have dealt with hair loss as a result of treatment for cancer and regularly wear wigs. I want to make sure I can do what I can to help any child going through treatment. I know how much joy and confidence can come to those who can wear a wig after they lose their hair.

A word from Kayleigh

‘The continued support from my colleagues at Glasgow Forge and patients is astonishing. I really appreciate any donation that can take us a step closer to fighting this horrible disease.’

This is not the first time Kayleigh has cut her hair for this fantastic cause. Kayleigh has donated her hair twice in the past three years, giving more than 12 inches each time. Kayleigh is passionate about The Little Princess Trust and plans to donate her locks for as long as she can.

Kayleigh will also be fundraising for Stand Up to Cancer. Kayleigh set an aim of raising £200, and because of the generosity of her family, friends and customers in store she has managed to exceed this total and has raised the fantastic total of £571 for Stand Up to Cancer.
