A Stonehaven childminder has organised a fundraising event where she intends to shave her head for a cause close to her heart.
Twenty-seven year-old Heather Scott will be raising funds for the Little Princess Trust at an event at the Station Hotel in Stonehaven tomorrow night (Friday).
The Little Princess Trust provides real-hair wigs to boys and girls who have lost their hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses such as alopecia.
Heather said: “Unfortunately, I have suffered from alopecia since I was 18 years old.
‘‘I have been very fortunate to have my hair grow back and now I feel that I wish to help children who may not be as fortunate as me to find a way to gain their own happiness and confidence back through the amazing work of The Little Princess Trust.
‘‘At the event I will be shaving my own head to not only gain donations (on average one real-hair wig costs £350) for this charity but also to help raise awareness of how much a wig can mean to a child who is going through so much stress and turmoil, while trying to continue on with their everyday lives.
‘‘At the event I intend to raffle and auction off donated prizes from national and local businesses, I have had remarkable feedback and donations so far.”
