Bromsgrove girls to have their long hair cut to make wigs for young cancer patients

TWO BROMSGROVE girls are having their hair cut so it can be donated to youngsters who have lost their own locks because of treatment for cancer.

Alanya Morgan, 17, and Faith Harrod, eight, will have their hair chopped at the town’s Chapters hairdressers.

The pair are also raising funds to pay for the real hair wigs which cost around £500 each.

Faith and Alanya have set a target of £1,000 and when they reach the target they will have their hair cut. They need a minimum of 12ins of hair to be able to produce a wig each.

Faith’s mum Sarah said: “I’m distraught at the thought of her cutting her hair but so proud of her for choosing to do something to help other children that didn’t get a choice about losing theirs.”

The girls are hoping Standard readers will help them reach their goal.
