On Christmas Eve, a brave Betty Sellars Page shaved off her hair for Macmillan Cancer Support, raising over £2500; she has also donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust to be made into wigs for children with cancer.
If you wish to donate here’s the link.
Betty says on her page:
The reason for my head shave is that I know many friends and family who have suffered. But I think that it is harder on children and teenagers, I am not saying that it is worse. Cancer is cancer, nothing more nothing less. But children might find coping with this illness harder, losing hair, missing out on friends. So I will be shaving my hair for the children to make wigs and make them feel more comfortable with their appearance ❤️
Martin Reay of Budehaven School says: we are all incredibly proud of her amazing Act of Kindness. Not surprised. Well done to Betty on your brave action to help others.
