My Bloggers Charity...Little Princess Trust

I recently found a charity called the Little Princess Trust, they offer help to children suffering hair loss through the treatment of cancer and other illnesses. I would love for my blog to be able to help a charity as I think it's a great opportunity to help let others know about a cause you feel strongly about.
I picked the Little Princess Trust because, as a hairdresser I know how much people, young or old can care about their hair. It's a very important part of who we are and to have that taken away from us can really affect someone not only on the way the look but how they feel.


The charity was started by the parents, school and friends of Hannah Tarplee, who sadly passed away in June 2005 - they wanted to help make specialist wigs for children more accessible as losing their hair can be very traumatic. I can't even imagine losing my hair, and I wouldn't for a second attempt to imagine what the children go through.

Reading through the website I was touched by the stories told, especially that of Emily, who lost her hair aged two. To see the change in Emily is amazing, and her smile says it all. It's not just the child that benefits, the family supporting them will see a change and that can give many a huge boost at a difficult time.


I donate to a few charities on a regular basis, and I'd love to make this one of them. The work they do helps children to feel a little better whilst fighting illnesses and for me that's something I'd wholly support. I will be organising something in the new year to raise funds for this charity, if you'd like to be involved then please let me know. You can either comment or send me an email klg_hair@hotmail.co.uk
