My name is Amber Welch and I am in Class 5. I am 6 years old. On Saturday 24th March, I am going to have 14 inches, (that’s 35 cm) of my hair cut off, to donate to The Little Princess Trust. The trust uses real hair to make wigs for children and young people who have suffered hair loss through illness.
When I heard about children who were so poorly they would lose their hair, it made me feel sad and I wanted to help. So, on Saturday, at The Union in Colne, we will be fund raising. There will be a raffle and you can sponsor me to have my long hair chopped short!
There will also be a non-uniform day in school on Friday to help to raise more funds.
