Caitlin's locks will be lopped for trust

Evesham Editorial 2nd Jul, 2016 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

A KIND-hearted girl from Evesham who has been growing her hair for nearly 13 years is getting it cut off so it can be used to make wigs out of for children suffering from cancer.

Caitlin Godfrey will be facing the chop next Saturday (July 9), with locks of her hair being donated to the Little Princess Trust.

It will then be used by the charity to create a wig which will be given to a youngster who has suffered from hair loss as a result of cancer treatment.

She is also hoping to raise hundreds of pounds for Cancer Research and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Caitlin said: “I’ve been growing my hair for nearly 13 years. It’s very long and I’d like to get it cut shorter, but rather than just getting it cut, I’d like to cut it and have it help a child that needs a wig.

“I’d also like to try and raise some money to help everyone.”

To donate to Caitlin’s haircut visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Caitlin-Mai-Godfrey or text CMMG50 £5 to 70070 for Cancer Research, or CMMG60 £5 for Macmillan.
