High School haircuts raise more than £700 for charity

A group of pupils and staff at the High School of Dundee have donated hair and raised money for the Little Princess TrustSome High School of Dundee pupils and staff members have raised more than £700 for charity by having their hair cut.

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.

After growing their hair in preparation, the members of the 12-strong collective have each now had seven inches cut off, with Mandy Sweeney and Hannah Allan from Oh So Gorgeous Hairdressing having kindly volunteered to come in to school to help some of the pupils undergo the chop in stylish fashion.
