A girl from Stonehaven donated several inches of her hair, raising thousands for charity and inspired a teacher to do the same.
Primary seven pupil Abi Davidson got 13 inches of her hair cut for the Little Princess Trust, which uses the cut off hair to make wigs for children who have lost their own - for example through chemotherapy.
She got her hair shortened in front of pupils of Mill O Forest Primary School as part of a ‘crazy hair’ day, whereby pupils attended the school in wigs and unusually styled hair for donations, on Tuesday, March 22.
Abi proposed the idea to the school of her own volition, which inspired teacher Mrs Nicole Cunningham to follow suit, and she got 8 1/2 inches off her’s off.
Abi raised over £2000 for the charity; Mrs Cunningham raised £350, and the school collected over £400 through the crazy hair day theme.
Stonehaven After School Club contributed to £100 of 12 -year-old Abi’s grand total contribution.
Carole Coupar from Carole’s Home Salon generously went to the school to do the cut for free.
Abi’s mother Debbie Davidson said that her daughter was “pleased with herself and proud to have done it.”
It costs the Little Princess Trust £350 to make each wig.
