Nadine Donates her Lockdown Locks

Do you ever remember returning to school after a long holiday to find that your classmate looked different? New trims, radiant sun tans and fresh new uniform are just a handful of examples where classmates take a second glance before recognising a friend’s new look.

Well that’s exactly what happened to Nadine in Year 9 this week who returned from the Easter break looking very different indeed – all in aid of a great cause.

Having flaunted long locks for many years, Nadine bravely asked the hairdresser to cut off 19 inches of hair in support of The Little Princess Trust.

The Little Princess Trust is a charity that provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

The trust is actively promoting their #WeLoveLockdownLocks campaign, encouraging people of all ages to donate their excess lockdown hair.

Nadine explained:

Lots of my friends from primary school and Penrice have only ever seen me with long hair. It was a big shock to them when I returned to school after the holidays. Lots of people have said the new haircut looks nice.

Nadine was initially planning to support The Little Princess Trust back in Year 6, but admitted that she was too scared at the time. However, a close friend of the family recently suffering with Leukaemia gave Nadine the motivation to donate her locks to charity so that it can be used to make wigs.
