Little Lucy becomes a LifeShaver

A brave seven-year-old has made a buzz in Banbury, Oxfordshire, after having seven inches cut off her hair to raise money for children and young people with cancer. 

Little Lucy becomes a LifeShaver

Lucy was braver than most, as she chose to take part in CLIC Sargent's Big Buzz in front of her fellow pupils at Wroxton C of E Primary School.

Lucy said: “I wanted to have my hair cut, there is a boy at school who has lost his hair as he has leukaemia. His hair has grown back now.

“Mummy also told me about the Little Princess Trust who makes wigs for children who have lost their hair and I thought it would be good to donate mine, but first I have to grow it longer!”

“Lucy has raised an incredible £836 to support children and young people with cancer.” 

A proud mum

Lucy’s mum Catherine explains: “CLIC Sargent has been helping the family of the little boy at Lucy’s school. We are so very proud of Lucy for taking on the challenge as soon as she learnt donating her hair to help others was an option.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager James McDonald said: “Lucy has joined so many others to become a LifeShaver for CLIC Sargent! I want to say a huge thank you to Lucy for all your fundraising and hope you enjoy your new hair style!”

You can support Lucy's brave fundraiser by making a donation on her official Just Giving page.
