Mates Shave The Belgravia Centre

While we usually hear about females donating their long tresses to hair loss charities, here’s a story about the boys doing their bit.

Two men, both with shoulder-length hair, have had their locks chopped off for charity. Chris Hall, 33, and Andy Warburton, 31, from the web and design team at Slimming World, Alfreton, chose to donate their hair to Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides real-hair wigs for children with cancer and other hair loss conditions such as Alopecia.

In addition, the men have put together a fundraiser to raise extra funds for the charity. The pair were quickly able to reach their target of £750. As each wig costs on average £350 per wig, this amount will go towards making two real-hair wigs for children in need.

Raising money for children in need

Chris describes how he was inspired to do this good deed: "The Little Princess Trust was something I read about. I just thought that these kids need my hair more than I do. I told my mate Andy I was doing it and he said he'd show his support and do it with me. We're still collecting sponsorship money and people are still donating online. The support we've had has been amazing and we're so pleased we've raised so much money for such a brilliant cause."

Andy echoes Chris’ thoughts, and is also enthusiastic about the unexpected benefits of his new ‘do: "When I heard Chris was doing it I thought it was such a great cause that I jumped on board to support him straight away. I really like the new cut so far. It's incredibly shampoo efficient and dries instantly."

About Little Princess Trust

Little Princess Trust is a charity that provides real-hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls throughout the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Little Princess Trust also provides wigs for children who have lost hair through conditions such as Alopecia Areata, which affects 1 or 2 people in every 1,000. The condition is characterised by sudden patchy hair loss. The exact cause of Alopecia is unknown but it is classed as an autoimmune condition, and affects males and females equally.

We at the Belgravia Centre are proud to support Little Princess Trust and the great work they do.
