The Girl is an Explorer Scout. Her scout group are going to Kanderstag International Scout Camp in Switzerland in 2016 and she has to raise the money to pay for the trip. Fundraising is not my forte and I was really stuck for ideas and suggestions for her. However, it turns out, she has had a very good idea of her own :)

The Girl wanted to help other children by donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust to be made into wigs for children with cancer. She has been collecting sponsors and the money will go towards her scout trip. Yesterday, she had 12" of hair cut off her head. The long thick plait weighed 94g and was posted to the Little Princess Trust yesterday. One of the local beaver leaders kindly cut her hair for her :)

From this..... this.


Both me and The Girl have been overwhelmed by the messages of support for what she has done. It has really made her realise that donating hair is special and that it will have a real impact on others. I am very proud of her for her thoughtfulness and determination.

Thank you to all those people who have left messages and thank you to those who have donated. She has made a good start on her fundraising for going to the International Scout Camp next year :)


  1. What a great thing to do and such a good cause. You have a very kind daughter I hope she loves scout camp!

    1. Thank you. The Girl is amazed by everyone's good wishes :)
