Crewkerne business woman Kylie Hammond of the Take A Peek Boutique, is helping her daughter Evelynne to raise funds for the Little Princess Trust. Evelynne will be having her long blonde hair cut for charity on July 18th, so that it can be sent away and made into a wig for a child that has lost their own hair, following treatment for cancer and other illnesses.
The Little Princess Trust is a registered charity, that provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls. The charity has given away nearly 5,000 wigs and needs help to give away more.
On her fundraising page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Kylie-Hammond1, Evey tells her story: “I recently lost my uncle to cancer and it has made me aware of the disease and that it’s not just adults that get it, so I’m hoping that I will help one child, who has had to battle this awful illness. Thank you for sponsoring me and helping me raise enough to get one wig made at the cost of £350.00.” Money donated through Just Giving will go directly to the charity. Those who donate through the online website, can be assured that their personal details will remain confidential.
