Members of the public are being asked to consider donating their long locks for charity after a St Austell teacher had the chop to support the charity Little Princess Trust.
Steph Norman, who is a lecturer of English and Maths at Cornwall College St Austell, went to the College’s Koko Salon and left somewhat lighter having had a good 30 centimetres of hair removed.
“I went into the training salons at work for my usual haircut and was persuaded to have a little more off than normal,” Steph explained.
“It was so much, that I could donate the length to the Little Princess Trust.”
The Little Princess Trust makes wigs for children with Cancer or other illnesses that have caused them to lose their hair.
“I hope that my donation will benefit a young person in need” Steph added.
Tanya Vinton is the hair lecturer who oversaw the cutting of the long locks.
“We’ve had many people over the years donate their long hair or have it cut really short for charity, it’s a great thing to do if you can and we’re more than happy to discuss options with you in the salon,” she explained.
If anyone would like to have their hair cut for charity like Steph did please get in touch with KoKo Reception on: 01726 226728.
