Belgravia Accounts Assistant Donates 12″ Ponytail to Hair Loss Charity

It’s a case of New Year, new look for Belgravia’s charitable Accounts Assistant, Kathleen, who has had a dramatic haircut in order to help children with hair loss.

Inspired by our reception manager, Roxy, who donated 12 inches of her long hair in December 2016, Kathleen easily equaled her donation. This makes a total of at least 24 inches between them!

Drastic change

Compassionate Kathleen was nervous about having so much of her beautiful hair cut off, and is still getting used to her chic, choppy bob. She said of getting the chop: “It’s definitely a drastic change and it is slowly growing on me. I’m starting to like it more each day though. It’s funny as I initially said I was going to donate 7-8 inches… turns out the hairdresser took 12-13 inches off, but it is for a good cause so I can deal with it.” Continues below

Kathleen Belgravia Centre Little Princess Trust Hair Loss Charity Donation

We think she looks fabulous with her shorter hairstyle and are so proud of our kindhearted staff members, who are both based at The Belgravia Centre flagship hair loss clinic opposite Victoria Station.

The two women donated their hair to the Little Princess Trust charity which supplies real hair wigs to children who need them. This is usually due to hair loss from cancer treatment or from severe forms of the autoimmune disorder Alopecia Areata. Receiving one of these wigs can help children’s self-esteem, which can suffer tremendous strain under such circumstances, and help them to feel as if they ‘fit in’.

Wigs for girls and boys

Established in 2006, the charity is a recipient of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – ‘the MBE for volunteer groups’ its website clarifies.

During its centenary year the Little Princess Trust’s work got a publicity boost when former One Direction pop star Harry Styles grew out then donated his hair to them. This led to an increase in people donating their hair and also to those raising money for the charity. It is so important to keep the momentum going as this financial support helps Little Princess Trust – which also encompasses a boys’ division called Hair 4 Boys – to continue to supply its wigs, usually made from the donated hair though afro hair wigs have to be manufactured separately, free of charge.

In addition to its wig service, the charity also recently announced that it had raised £500,000 to be put towards research into childhood cancers.
