own hair through cancer treatment.

planning to have his cut on Sunday 15th February at Burnham's
Beaux Cheveux hair salon.

proceeds going towards the cost of having the wigs made for the
those supporting him is his mother Wendy, who says: "It makes
me feel very lucky to have healthy children; you never know what
life has in store to throw your way, and I would like to think
that anyone that is so unfortunate to have to go through cancer
treatment would in some way benefit from this."

I want to donate it to The Little Princess Trust. This superb
charity makes wigs for children with hair loss from cancer treatment
