Doing my bit for charity

So I have very curly hair which gets everywhere... Literally!! I am constantly moving it out my face and apologising for it blowing in other peoples faces! So it's time for it to go!!

For a while now I have wanted to cut my fairly long hair for two reasons...

1. So it's ready for summer to keep nice and cool

2. I have been growing my hair for so long and my goal was to have it about half way down my back, which I have achieved....

so it's time to cut it off!!

I heard about the little princess charity through someone who does youtube videos and is doing the same thing. They are a charity that take hair and use it to make wigs for children who have had cancer and chemotherapy and therefore have lost their hair.

But not only did I want to give my hair to the Little Princess Tust, but I also wanted to get sponsored to do it. So I decided to choose a charity that I know something about and is a title more close to home.

The macmillan cancer suppirt charity. They are are charity caring for patients and their families to help them get through it. They have nurses to go into people's homes and have helplines to give advice to people from how to manage finances whilst Ill, but also helping with telling loved ones that someone has cancer.
I have known about Macmillan for a long time. My granddad died from cancer when I was around 13 and he and the family were cared for by macmillan nurses and staff. Also my mom has organised Macmillan coffee mornings with her work for many years and I have always known her doing them.

I am planning to do this just before the Easter holidays at university start (aiming for the week of 7th April) and my aim at the moment is to raise around £200, so please please give towards this!
i will be writing a blog about my progress throughout and am panning to film it being cut off for everyone to see.

My closest friend also has a blog, which she will be writing on about this so please follow the links to her too!

Thank you everyone for supporting me!!
