Lockdown locks donated to charity
Vincent Ah-Koon has grown some incredible locks during the lockdown and has decided to donate his hair to The Little Princess Trust. The Little Princess Trust provides free real hair wigs to children and young people, up to 24 years, who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions.
Vincent and the team at X3 Consulting would like to raise £550 to help make a wig for the charity and give a person some confidence in their time of crisis. From receiving hair donations at their office, through to fitting and styling a bespoke wig, it costs the charity from £550 to provide a real-hair wig free-of-charge, to our wig recipients. There are many elements that add to the cost of the wigs, including: manufacture, storage, salon fees, and so on — which is why in addition to the hair we’d like to raise the funds to make this happen.
Established in 2006, The Little Princess Trust have supplied over 8000 wigs to children and young people and have invested circa £5 million into ground-breaking childhood cancer research. The focus of the research they fund is closely linked to their pledge to provide free real hair wigs and fund studies that not only look for ways to improve a young person’s chance of survival but to do so while reducing the side effects from treatment.
