Sheffield minister donating her hair to children’s cancer charity
Rev Maud Robinson, minister of Underbank Unitarian Chapel and Fulwood Old Chapel in the Sheffield area, is donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children underdoing cancer treatment.
As the Sheffield Star reports, Rev Maud says: “Over successive lockdowns without hairdresser visits, my hair has grown longer than it’s been for years. The Princess Trust is looking for hair longer than seven inches at the moment, to make wigs for kids who have lost their hair to cancer. I’m going to bite the bullet and chop it all off, and just hope it grows back fast. So if you have a couple of quid to spare, help me make my bad-hair-days-to-come worthwhile.” You can read the full article here.
It costs about £550 (and hair from about 10 people) to make a wig. If Maud reaches this target, she will have a buzz cut – and if she reaches £1,000 she promises to “go the full Kojak” and go fully bald!
