Six-year-old girl cuts off 12 inches of her hair for children’s cancer charity the Little Princess Trust


A schoolgirl has had her long locks cut off to donate to the Little Princess Trust.

Six-year-old Evelyn Malkin, who attends Leonard Stanley Primary School, underwent the haircut earlier this month with the intention of donating her 12 inches of hair to the Little Princess Trust – a children’s cancer charity that provides real-hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.

Her dad Andrew told Stroud Times: “Last year,  Evelyn heard about a charity that provides wigs for young people who have lost their hair through illness. At that moment she decided there and then that she wanted to grow her hair and donate it to someone who needs it more than herself.” 

“The Little Princess Trust is a fantastic charity so Evelyn is hoping her haircut will raise some money to support them. 

“When a child loses their hair to cancer or another condition, Little Princess Trust provide a free, real hair wig to help restore their confidence and identity. They also fund research into childhood cancer however, the Trust relies solely on the efforts of fundraisers.”

Evelyn’s epic haircut has so far raised and incredible £1,700 but you can add to this total by clicking the link HERE
