Cathy’s hair cut for a very worthwhile cause

Village resident Cathy Coleman has set herself a target of raising £500 for a cancer charity that makes wigs for young children who have lost their hair during treatment. To do so, she is cutting 14 inches off her hair to donate to the Little Princess Trust.

It is a great cause, and Cathy is asking for help from villagers to help her meet her target. For details of how to donate, please read on.


Hello Everyone,

I am cutting 14 inches off my hair and donating it to the Little Princess Trust. This incredible charity creates wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses. The charity aims to give them a little more confidence and a sense of normality when their whole world has been completely changed.

Along with everyone else I was unable to get my hair cut throughout the pandemic. I wanted to create something positive out of a pretty horrible couple of years. The Little Princess Trust do a brilliant job of supporting young people through a troubling time in their lives, and the charity also funds vital research into cancer treatments.

I am asking for donations to help me raise £500, which is how much it costs to create and fit a wig. The link for my fund-raising page is below, there is also a donation box at the Merry Harriers pub:

For more information on what the Little Princess Trust does please visit its website ( where you can also find details on how to donate your own hair if you want to support a great cause.

Thank you in advance for any donation you can give.

Cathy Coleman
