Brierley Hill teacher will chop 19 inches off her hair for children's cancer charity at Kingswinford fun day
5:30pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
A KINGSWINFORD pub will hold a fun day to support a charity that makes wigs for children with cancer.
The main attraction at the event at The Lenches Bridge, High Street, will be Victoria Hill, aged 26, from Brierley Hill, who is having 19 inches cut off her hair to donate to the Little Princess Trust.
Mrs Hill, a teacher at Withymoor Primary School, Brierley Hill, decided she would like to donate her hair two years ago and chose the trust as it supports children who have lost their hair because of the disease, by making them wigs using real hair.
Her mother, Sharon Bridgwater, said: “She is quite happy about it being cut although quite apprehensive as she hasn't had short hair for around 20 years. It will be cut at the nape of her neck as obviously being a teacher she would like to still look presentable.”
Mrs Hill will face the scissors at 7pm on November 2 but the pub’s family fundraising event will start at noon.
Guests will be able to tuck into food fresh off the BBQ, get their face painted and enjoy a disco and fireworks.
Pub manager, Paula Bromley, said: “ I am delighted to be able to support this fantastic cause and be able to host the family event here. We really need everyone’s support to make this event a huge success.”
