Girl's charity haircut raises £1,100 at Easter family day

An Easter fun day was held at Larchfield Community Centre in Desborough Park on Friday, April 18.


Youngsters were entertained with bunny bingo and an egg hunt, but it was 12-year-old Emily Kinsella who stole the show.

The year seven pupil at Cox Green School had the sides and back of her head shaved to raise more than £1,100 for Cancer Research UK and she donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust, which makes real-hair wigs for children suffering hair loss.

"It's for children my age, or older, or younger that lose their hair because of a disease," said Emily, who reduced many of the watching crowd to tears as the clippers went to work.
