Cappagh YFC raise over £2,000 for The Little Princess Trust

Towards the end of 2015, Cappagh YFC held a charity night in aid of 'The Little Princess Trust' a charity which makes real wigs free of charge for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatments and various other illnesses. Natalie Burrows, Alex Robinson, Zara Preston, Lucy Jobb, Emma Baxter and Hanna Baxter took on the brave task of getting at least 7 inches cut off their hair. Of course, they couldn't let the boys get off easy either, so many of them got their legs waxed and their own club treasurer Kyle Arnold got his hair dyed in the charity colours; pink! The club would like to thank everyone who came along and filled the club hall to support them, all the members who helped out on the night and with the preparations, and of course many thanks must go to our hairdressers Kerry and Kelly! A huge well done must go to all the brave girls who got their hair chopped and the boys that got their legs waxed and of course Kyle who got his hair dyed. As it costs around £350 to make each wig, Cappagh YFC members were out and about with sponsorship sheets, to round up any small donation that we could. It is with great pleasure that we can officially announce that Cappagh YFC have raised a huge £2,520.15 for The Little Princess Trust as well as around 100 inches of hair! Thanks must go to every who donated, it is greatly appreciated!
