Pupils and staff to have their hair cut for a good cause

Some pupils and staff at the High School of Dundee are donating their hair to the Little Princess Trust

Some High School of Dundee pupils and staff members are getting their hair cut for a good cause.

F5 pupil Lucy Arnold came up with the fantastic idea of organising for a group of kind-hearted volunteers to donate their locks to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides real hair wigs free of charge to children across the UK and Ireland who have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses.

Having grown their hair in preparation, after tomorrow the members of the 12-strong collective will each be having seven inches cut off either in school, or at their own hairdressers at a later date.

The pupils and staff taking part are:  Lucy Arnold (F5), Esther Douglas (F1), Shona MacTavish (F5), Camryn McKay (F1), Emily McLean (F5), Zara Taylor (F1), Ellie Hunter-Franks (F4), Caitlin Mitchell (F6), Amy Ovenstone-Jones (F5), Charlotte Hunter-Franks (F5), Dr Emily Robinson (Chemistry) and Ms Iona McFarlane (Library).

With each Little Princess Trust wig costing around £500 to make, the High School group has set up a sponsorship page at: in the hope of raising as money as possible for the charity.
