Littleborough girl to donate hair to the Little Princess Trust

Date published: 12 June 2019

A nine-year-old girl from Littleborough is aiming to raise £1,000 for charity by donating 12 inches of her own hair.

Grace Nock has been growing her hair for the past two-and-a-half years to be able to donate 12 inches to the Little Princess Trust, which supplies real-hair wigs for children with conditions that result in hair loss such as alopecia or chemotherapy.

Grace will be having her hair cut at the Ox and Plough on New Road, where she lives, on Sunday 30 June, and is currently seeking donations for raffle and or auction prizes to raise money for the charity.

Hairdresser Debbie Alger has offered to do the big chop free of charge.

Grace’s mum, Adele said: “Grace wants the children who have cancer to be able to use her hair as she has so much of it, and it shouldn’t be wasted. We are also looking for raffle prizes or auction donations for the day.

“People may donate via popping into the pub and sponsoring her, or we have donation boxes on the bar for change.”

To date, Grace has raised just over £300.
