Maisie’s hair raising £1000 donation

Posted on 21st December 2023 | in Community

Amble youngster, Maisie Edwards, aged six, has donated 12” of her long locks to The Little Princess Trust, who make and donate real hair wigs for children who have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment or other conditions such as alopecia.

Maisie’s Mother, Lindsey explained: “I heard about this fantastic charity through a friend who donated her hair following the tragic passing of her Dad to cancer; I was inspired by her bravery and I told Maisie about it. Sometime later, when Maisie was due for a hair trim she asked if she could have her hair cut short and donate it to help the poorly children we had talked about. I was so proud of her kindness.”

“When I researched The Little Princess Trust I learned that it costs in the region of £700 to provide a child with a wig, so I decided to set up a Just Giving page to see if we could raise some sponsorship to support the charity. I’m overwhelmed with the kindness of friends and family, raising over £1,000 in just a few days.”

Lindsey continued: “Maisie is quite shy when it comes to public speaking and doesn’t like being made a fuss of, but she was very brave and stood up in school assembly to tell her peers all about her fundraising and haircut. I have had several children and parents from Maisie’s school say to me since that Maisie’s kindness has inspired them to do the same, which is fantastic to hear. Maisie’s younger sister, who is three, has also offered to donate her hair….when she’s six!”
