Last month, if you were travelling between Hereford and Birmingham then you may have seen a convey of pink cars enroute. This spectacle was a fundraising event called Pink Car Rally which aims to raise money for The Little Princess Trust, the charity which sources and pays for ‘real wigs’ hair for children who have lost their hair primarily through cancer treatment. Gail Porter, who suffers from Alopecia Areata, is the charity’s Ambassador.
The idea for the Pink Car Rally came from Sali Gray who owns a pink Nissan Micra and says she gets “screams of delight” from girls of all ages (from 2 to 22!) when she drives past. She was inspired to help raise money for The Little Princess Trust after reading about the charity which was started by a couple who had lost their little girl to cancer. The parents said that their daughter had found losing her hair very traumatic and they had found it difficult to source a realistic looking wig.
So far this year’s Pink Car Rally has raised £635. The target is £1200. Sali hopes to make the Pink Car Rally an annual event. For more information, to make a donation or to get involved, go to www.littleprincesses.org.uk
