Cappagh YFC chops for charity for the Little Princess Trust

Towards the end of 2015, Cappagh YFC held a charity event in in aid of The Little Princess Trust a charity which makes real wigs free of charge for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatments and various other illnesses.

Emma Baxter and Hanna Baxter took on the brave task of getting at least seven inches cut off their hair.

Of course, the club couldn’t let the boys get off easy either, so many of them got their legs waxed and the club’s own club treasurer Kyle Arnold got his hair dyed in the charity colours – pink.

The club would like to thank everyone who came along and filled the club hall to support the club, all the members who helped out on the night and with the preparations and of course to hairdressers Kerry and Kelly.

A huge well done must go to all the brave girls who got their hair chopped and the boys who got their legs waxed and of course Kyle who got his hair dyed.

As it costs around £350 to make each wig, Cappagh YFC members were out and about with sponsorship sheets, to round up any small donation that they could.

It is with great pleasure that the club can officially announce that Cappagh YFC have raised a huge £2520.15 for the Little Princess Trust as well as around 100 inches of hair.

The club couldn’t have done it without you, so thanks must go to everyone who donated, it is greatly appreciated.
