Genevieve goes short for charity
PUBLISHED: 15:00 15 July 2015
A year 11 pupil from Sidcot School has donated her hair to The Little Princess trust.
Genevieve Lane, aged 15 and from Cheddar, raised more than £400 by having her hair cut at Sidcot ’s garden party in Winscombe, with £400 more raised online.
The charity has provided about 2,000 free wigs to children being treated for cancer and other illnesses.
Genevieve said: “The idea came from when me and my family were having dinner and joking that if I ever went into debt in later life I could sell my hair.
“I had it short as a kid so it does not feel completely strange.”
