Street local Nancy Bix, a Year 6 pupil at Millfield Prep School in Glastonbury, has donated 13 inches of her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that gives real hair wigs to children who are suffering from hair loss from cancer treatment or other illnesses.
Nancy has also raised £225 of her £515 target to fund the creation of a wig. The Millfield Prep pupil was inspired by school friends Cammie Collins and Manou Smits, who donated their hair to the Little Princess Trust last year. Feeling like she could also make a difference to a child’s life, Nancy decided to do the same.
Nancy says: “I decided to cut my hair because I wanted to help children who have lost their hair, due to illness or medication. I wanted to help them feel happier and confident at school and out and about.”
