Junior Miss Cumbria Beauty Queen Donates Hair to Charity

A 16-year-old beauty queen is following in the footsteps of celebrities such as Jessie J. as she makes the bold decision to donate her hair to charity. Lacie Cartwright, who has been chosen as a finalist in the Junior Miss Cumbria competition, plan to raise money for children’s charity ‘Variety’ and will donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity which makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment or hair loss conditions such as Alopecia.

Junior Miss Cumbria contestant Lacie Cartwright will donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust charityA bold move

The Millom School pupil plans to have more than a foot of her hair cut off, a bold move for a beauty queen! She says, “At the moment I’m in the process of organising a charity haircut. I’m going to have 14 to 16 inches cut off. The money is going to be donated to Variety and the hair to Little Princess Trust. I want to be more involved in the community and helping other people out.” 

Lacie is currently raising funds ahead of her charity haircut and you can find out how to donate by sending her a message through her Facebook page.

Plans for the future

But that’s not the only fundraising the teen beauty queen plans on doing – she also has plans to hold a talent night for charity at the Beggar’s Theatre in Millom in the near future. Speaking of her excitement at being chosen for the Junior Miss Cumbria finals – the first competition she has taken part in – Lacie says, “I’m excited about it. It’s the first competition like this I’ve taken part in. I wanted to do it to build my confidence and it has.”

Competition preparations

With Lacie’s charity haircut date still to be confirmed, her donated hair could soon be winging its way to China, where it will be made into a real-hair wig to help children affected by hair loss. In the meantime, Lacie is being kept busy with her preparations for the finale of the Junior Miss Cumbria competition, which takes place on 21st February 2015. Participants must model ecowear which they have made themselves, and Lacie is already hard at work on her outfit. She explains, “My friend and I are in the process of making it. We’re using old CDs and wires for a theme on technology.”

If you or someone you know would like to help children with hair loss, it’s easy to find out more about donating your hair to the Little Princess Trust. More information is available on the charity’s website and your hair could be used to bring confidence and happiness back into the lives of children across the UK and Ireland who have experienced hair loss after undergoing chemotherapy or hair loss conditions.
