A very brave little girl from Bedfordshire, Hallie Applegate, has taken part in CLIC Sargent's Big Buzz event and become a 'life shaver' by cutting her hair in support of children and young people with cancer.
With the support of friends, family and her local school, Hallie got up close and personal with the scissors at her local school raising an amazing £2,150.68 for CLIC Sargent and two other charities.
Every day 10 children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer. Many will lose their hair during treatment. CLIC Sargent's Big Buzz campaign is the chance for people to show their support and raise funds by shaving theirs heads.
Hallie said: “I’m cutting my hair for CLIC Sargent because they are helping my friend and class mate of mine who is currently beating a brain tumour.”
Hallie’s mum, Amanda said: “I am so proud of Hallie, this is an incredibly brave thing to do, but I just think of all of the children who will benefit from Hallie cutting her beautiful long hair.”
Hallie has donated her 12 inches of hair to the Little Princesses Trust where it will be made into a wig for a child who has lost their own hair through treatment.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manger Harriet Young said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Hallie for joining our Big Buzz campaign. We are absolutely blown away by the amazing amount of money she has managed to raise for us."
