14-year-old has her hair cut to raise money for The Osborne Trust
An amazing 14-year-old from Rhyl had her hair cut recently to raise money for the local charity The Osborne Trust. Kelsey and her Mum Carla decided to cut their hair short after Carla’s friend was diagnosed with cancer. They decided to turn it into a fundraiser to raise money for the Osborne Trust who are currently supporting Carla’s friends’ children. Alongside this they donated their hair to the little princess trust who provide real hair wigs for children who have cancer.
Kelsey adds “I decided to have my haircut because of all the people who lose theirs while being poorly (like my mums’ friend). I thought donating my hair can help people have a nice wig. When my mum told me, we were raising money for the Osborne Trust and told me what they do, I was happy to be helping children to have nice days out and take their minds off their worries, when their parents are suffering with cancer
Carla (Kelsey’s Mum) decided to raise some money for the Osborne Trust as they are helping one of my friends at such a difficult time in her life. Kelsey asked if she could do it with me and of course I agreed. Not only has she gone through having her haircut short, she also raised money with a bake sale at school. She is such an amazing young lady and couldn’t me prouder of her”.
Emma Osborne founder of the The Osborne Trust “We would like to thank Kelsey and her Mum Carla for raising over £1,000 by having their hair cut as a fundraiser for us. It was a pleasure to go along on the day to support such an inspiring young person doing good in our community. We would like to thank Mojo’s hair studio on Grange Road for supporting this event and cutting the hair for free. The money raised ensures another 10 local families can be supported where children see their parents undergoing cancer treatment.
