Emily cuts her hair…

I mentioned previously that my daughter Emily had decided to cut her long hair short in aid of leukaemia research. She did this in memory of her Grandfather Robert who died from the illness.

She is sending her hair to a charity who collect it to make wigs for people in treatment.

You can still donate via her Justgiving site if you like (nearly £600 raised so far!)

Here she is with (almost) appropriate music by Richard Thompson;

She cut off her long silken hair…

Emily is cutting her hair- in aid of Leukaemia research.

The photo above was taken at Christmas three years ago, a few months before Emily’s grandfather Robert died.

Here is Emily’s reason for cutting her hair;

So basically my Grandad was one of my best friends and I miss him a lot, but instead of being miserable I would rather do something about it, so I have decided to raise money for leukaemia research to help people like him.

My hair is currently waist length, and i’m going to cut it off, to about my chin length (about 16 inches)! The hair will also hopefully be taken by a charity that makes wigs for teenagers going through chemotherapy.

I’m aiming cut my hair in December, so I have plenty of time for fundraising! So yeah, please sponsor me 🙂

If you would like to contribute, you can do so through Emily’s Just Giving page here.
