HAIRDRESSERS in York have cut off a woman’s long curly locks so they can be made into a wig for a young cancer patient.
Rachel Jakulis, 31, of Easingwold, donated her hair after reading in The Press about a young girl who had benefited from the work of The Little Princess Trust.
“I was deeply moved by the work of the trust and wanted to do something more than just donate money,” she said.
“A real human-hair wig can cost £350 and is outside the budget of most people, especially those with more important things on their minds.”
Rachel’s hair was cut off at Fifty50 Hair in York, as she is the sister of creative director John Noble’s partner.
Mr Noble said: “When Rachel had the idea, I naturally volunteered to help. That way we can maximise the amount of hair we can use and give Rachel a fabulous but very short new hair style.” The haircut has raised £550 for the charity.
