On 3 March a local 8 year old girl is cutting her hair off in aid of 2 charities, Little Princess Trust and Horsham Matters.
Horsham Matters was contacted by mum, Karen, as her daughter, Kayla, wanted to donate her long hair to the Little Princess Trust in order to make real hair wigs, and also to raise money for the homeless.
Karen explained: “Last summer, my daughter Kayla said to me she didn’t think it was fair that she had such beautiful hair when there were little girls who were poorly and didn’t have any hair. She asked to get it cut off so she could give it to the Little Princess Trust to make into a wig.
“She also often comments on homeless people and wants to help them, and she has always wanted everyone to have a home. As we live in the Horsham area, we thought raising money to help others in our area would be good.”
Kayla wants to be sponsored to cut her hair and the money raised will go to the Night Shelter, run by Horsham Matters, which provides a safe environment in which to sleep, a warm meal and access to additional support services which are intended to try and move them to a much more stable and sustainable place.
The Night Shelter runs with the support of seven local churches who provide the venues and many of the dedicated 250 volunteers who make it happen, and requires financial donations to support its operation until the end of March 2020.
Please support Kayla’s brave efforts by going to her JustGiving page and making a donation:
