Trainee solicitor proves she’s a cut above the rest
One of our Trainee Solicitors has proved she’s a cut above the rest by donating ten inches of her hair to a children’s charity.
The charity provides free real hair wigs to children who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and health conditions such as alopecia.
Annie has had long hair since her teens. Reaction to her new style had been very positive, she said.
“My best friend suggested doing this and I thought, what a great idea,” said Annie.
“After my hair was cut off I posted it in a bag to the Little Princess Trust where it will be made into a wig. They’ve sent me a certificate and I feel really pleased at helping them out. It’s a very good cause.”
Annie said that her boyfriend, Matt Collins, 23, a carpenter, had been very supportive as had her colleagues at Ellis Jones.
“I’ve also raised £408 for the Little Princess Trust. Everyone has been very kind,” she added.
Monica Glass, Charity Manager at the Little Princess Trust, described Annie as an “amazing person.”
She added: “On behalf of everyone associated with the Little Princess Trust, I would like to thank Annie for everything that she has done for the charity. What an amazing person she is to have donated so much of her hair.
“This contribution will be blended with others and will be made into a wig for a poorly child. The wonderful amount of fundraising that Annie has raised thanks to her kind and generous supporters will purchase a further wig for a different child. Thank you so very much Annie!”
Nigel Smith, Ellis Jones’ Managing Partner, said: “Annie is a popular member of our team and everyone is very proud of her efforts.”
