A short cut to raise funds
Nine year old Millie had been inspired to make the donation having heard of another girl getting the chop
A kind hearted Killinkere girl donated almost a foot of her beautiful hair for those less fortunate.
Millie Jameson had 11 inches cut off her locks and donated to the Little Princess Trust to make wigs for little girls who lose their hair as a result of cancer treatments.
And that is not all that the 3rd class pupil at Billis NS has achieved – she also raised €1,900 for Laura Lynn.
Nine year old Millie had been inspired to make the donation having heard of another girl getting the chop, and immediately told her mother, Frances Nugent, “I would love to do that”.
“I am so happy to has raised all that money,” said Millie, who is from the townland of Stramaquerty, and all her friends are proud of what she has done.
Millie has no regrets about making the decision to cut her hair and enthused: “I love the new hair style.”
She will now let her hair grow and hopes to donate more next year.
Millie said she had been growing for hair for “ages”, before her mother Frances, who is a Hairdresser cut off eleven inches.
“I am very proud that she has done it – she never had her hair cut ‘short’ before,” said Frances, who concluded by thanking everyone for their generous donations.
