Milnrow schoolgirl to cut waist-length hair for charity

Lucie Smith is cutting 16 inches from her 26-inch hair to raise money for the Rochdale Children’s Moorland Home
A Milnrow schoolgirl is aiming to raise £300 for the Rochdale Children’s Moorland Home by cutting her waist-length hair.
Lucie Smith, 11, decided she wanted to help raise money for the Moorland Home after seeing an online post about how hard it currently is to raise money for the local charity, which acts as a respite for children from disadvantaged families.
The Rochdale Children’s Moorland Home, at Nab Farm in Wardle, also offers a week’s holiday for children – in many cases, the only opportunity that they have for a holiday.
A talented footballer who plays for Rochdale U12s and grassroots team Shawclough, Lucie decided to help by cutting 16 inches from her 26-inch hair, which will be donated to the Little Princess Trust.
The Little Princess Trust supplies real-hair wigs for children with conditions that result in hair loss, such as alopecia or chemotherapy.
Lucie’s mum, Toni, said: “Since birth, Lucie has only ever had an inch cut off now and then, so this is massive.”
Deborah Jane Alger of Razors Edge, Rochdale, will be cutting Lucie’s hair in July due to the current Covid-19 restrictions.
