10 Year Old Girl Shaves Head For Charity In Memory Of Twin

young girl shaved head hair lossA brave ten year old girl has shaved her head in order to raise money for charity after the tragic death of her twin sister, aged five, from meningitis. School girl Beatrix Hart, of West Mosely, donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust, a charity that  provides wigs and support to children suffering with various types of hair loss, including alopecia and hair loss from cancer treatment.

Beatrix and her father Matt, who also shaved off his ponytail, underwent the cut at a barber shop in nearby East Mosely, surrounded by friends and family. Describing the support for their brave money raising stunt, Matt said: “We went there with a crowd of people. I was feeling excited and scared at the same time.”

“Absolutely stunning”

“I have lost my hippy hair but my daughter had her head shaved the day after her 10th birthday. That’s massive.”  The very definition of proud father, Matt also added that he thought his daughter looked “absolutely stunning”.

Not only have the pair received support from their family, but when Beatrix went to school with a bare head she was greeted with rousing cheers from teachers and pupils. Father and daughter have so far raised around £1,000, to be split between Great Ormond Street Hospital and Clowns in the Sky, a charity dedicated to the research and treatment of childhood brain tumours. To make a donation, please email Matt at hartclan@aol.com.

All For A Good Cause

Beatrix is not the only brave young person to lose her hair for charity. Ten year old Maisie Reynolds of Murton, Country Durham, selflessly donated several inches of her hair in November last year, whilst Jessica Smith, from St Dunstan’s Hill in Sutton just weeks later followed suit and cut her long blonde hair. Jessica was swiftly followed by ten-year-old Connie Simmons from Southwick, Sunderland, who donated seven inches of hair to the trust in memory of her grandmother, who died of cancer. These are just some of the many brave people who have raised money and donated hair to charity.

The Belgravia Centre sponsors and supports The Little Princess Trust in their endeavours, and we would like to congratulate Matt, Beatrix, Maisie, Jessica and Connie on their efforts and encourage others to follow in their footsteps. If you would like to find out more about the charity and how you can show your support, visit the Little Princess Trust website for further details.
