19-year-old Cuts off Hair for Two Charities

Aimee Brown Little Princess Trust The Belgravia CentreBanknock resident Aimee Brown recently had her 24-inch blonde locks chopped off in support of two very worthy charities.

The 19-year-old shop worker donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides wigs made from real hair to children who have experienced hair loss.

Aimee also hopes to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity that has helped her grandmother through cancer. Aimee says: “My grandmother, Isobella Tripney, has suffered from cancer for six years and Macmillan has been a huge help to her.”

Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the UK’s largest charities, founded in 1911. The charity provides practical, medical and financial support for better cancer care. Since its inception, Macmillan Cancer Support has aided countless individuals in their battles against cancer, striving towards its goal of improving the lives of everyone living with cancer in the UK.

With her mother and brothers standing proudly beside her, Aimee says she wasn’t at all nervous about the chop: “I was quite excited actually. After all, I’m doing this for two good causes. It’s win-win for everybody.”

The Little Princess Trust

The Little Princess Trust, which we at The Belgravia Centre are proud to support, provides real-hair wigs, free of charge, to children across the UK and Ireland who have lost hair due to cancer treatment. In order to do this, the charity relies on hair donations from people like Aimee.

One of The Little Princess Trust’s most well-known supporters is UK pop singer Jessie J, who donated her hair to the charity when it was shaved off for Comic Relief last year.

Support for children with Alopecia

The Little Princess Trust also supports children who have experienced hair loss through other conditions, the most common being Alopecia: a form of hair loss characterised by sudden patchy loss of hair. The condition is quite common and, depending on its severity, treatment can be successful – although at hair loss clinics like The Belgravia Centre, only adults can be treated. Children must be taken to their GP for a recommendation of the best course of action.

The exact cause of Alopecia is not known, but it is classed as an auto-immune condition.

The wigs provided by The Little Princess Trust go a long way in bringing happiness to children experiencing hair loss as a result of cancer treatment or because of Alopecia.
