A Bearsden Primary School pupil is turning heads with her new look after becoming a ‘life-shaver’ in support of children and young people with cancer, and their families.
Molly the 'life shaver'
Nine-year-old Molly McCabe braved the scissors as part of CLIC Sargent's Big Buzz campaign, which encourages people to shave their heads to support children and young people with cancer, many of whom lose their hair during treatment.
The sponsored hair cut was held in G20 Salon on Queen Margaret Drive, where stylist Mark MacDonald cut Molly’s long hair as she was watched and encouraged by mum Vicky, great aunt Heather and her two younger sisters Emily and Lottie.
Molly's mum Vicky said: "Molly has always had long hair but built up her courage to cut it short for charity.
"She had hoped to raise around £100 for CLIC Sargent, so we are all so surprised and delighted that she has been sent over £1,500 in donations!
"Molly is sending her hair to the Little Princess Trust, and CLIC Sargent will use the money raised to help young cancer patients. I’m very proud."
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Rachael McLean said: "I would like to say a huge thank you to Molly for becoming a ‘life-shaver’ for CLIC Sargent.
"I think her new hairstyle is beautiful! Her friends, family and school have all been so supportive of her fundraising which has been a huge success."
