Kind teacher donates hair to charity for ill youngsters

A KIND teacher has donated her hair to a charity for which she has also raised £500.

Having had her hair cut after growing it for a number of years, Kaylee McHale donated the hair to the Little Princess Trust so it can be turned into a wig for a young person affected by a medical condition, such as cancer.

Kaylee, who teaches geography at The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College, has also raised £500 for the charity which will cover the cost to produce the wig.

The school’s headteacher Alison Davies said: “Over the years we’ve had a number of students donate their hair to the Little Princess Trust and it is wonderful to see a member of staff making a donation too.

“Acts of kindness, such as this, are great for our students to see and will encourage them to care and help those in need.”

The Little Princess Trust was established in 2006, and has provided thousands of real hair wigs to poorly children and young people across the UK and Ireland.
