A three-year-old girl will be saying bye to hear beautiful long hair to support a children’s hospice.
Emma McGregor, from Forfar, decided to cut her hair off for Charlton Farm Children’s Hospice who are looking after her friend Logan, who suffers from a life-limiting condition.
The youngster will also be donating the cut hair to The Little Princess Trust, who make real hair wigs for children suffering from hair loss.
As seen in our photo, there will be quite a hefty donation made given just how long Emma’s hair is!
Charlton Farm Children’s Hospice offers Logan and his family a place where they can go for a little bit of rest a few nights a year, and somewhere he will be looked after.
Emma’s proud mum Laura got in touch with the Dispatch to tell us about her daughter’s big-hearted donation - a deed well beyond her years.
The Charlton Farm hospice is once of three under the Children’s Hospice South West banner, with Little Bridge House in North Devon and Little Harbour in Cornwall joining the Somerset-based branch.
The group helps and supports children and their families who are living with life-limiting conditions and are the only organisation in the south west of the United Kingdom to provide vital hospice care to these families.
There are more than 1000 children who could benefit for their care, but they are only able to provide care for up to 400 families - be it palliative care or emergency care.
