The MBE for volunteer groups, given to The Little Princess Trust by Her Majesty The Queen
Olivia Nolan - Maidstone Kent -
My name is Olivia and I am 12 years old, I have been growing my hair for 3 years so that I can get it cut and donate it to The Little Princess Trust.
I have been very excited about this and on 21/8/18 I finally had my haircut and today I am sending 15 inches of my hair to The Little Princes Trust.
I feel very proud that I have been able to do this and I hope this helps other children who are not as lucky as I am.
I have also raised £325+gift aid.

In just 2 weeks time I am having my long locks chopped off to donate to the Little Princess Trust! Feeling slightly scared but super excited that my hair will be turned into a wig for a little one. I also love what the Little Princess Trust does so can’t wait to raise money to support the charity too!

I donated my hair last October and it was one of the best things I have decided to do in my life. Knowing that my hair might have been turned in to a wig for a child who really wishes to have hair is truly fulfilling. As someone who usually has their hair grown almost down to their belly button, having it cut off chin length was scary, but I don’t regret it at all. I would do it again in a heartbeat, if only my hair was long enough again! If you’re contemplating cutting your hair for charity I can only tell you you should do it!

Very soon, I’m going to chop my hair. I did this 2 years ago and hoping that people will get better or at least get a good wig. The Little princesses trust is a great charity and helping others. I would chop my hair when I can give someone a wig.

I’ve donated my hair to this incredible charity twice now, when I was 10 and 14. It is such a worthy cause and is something I would implore others to do. I started losing my hair 6 months ago to alopecia, and am now being helped by The Little Princess Trust to get a wig – I hope that I can raise over double the amount the wig is worth so this amazing charity is able to help many others like they are helping me. I also really hope that when if my hair grows back I will be able to donate it again many times to help make more wigs. It would be great if more people could donate their hair or fundraise to raise more awareness of this fantastic charity, as I know how important it is to young people to get the help and support they need when they lose their hair.

For as long as I can remember I have been growing my hair, and with it now measuring 13 inches I am going to cut it off and I cannot wait to donate it to such an amazing cause, I’m so glad I got to be a part of such an incredible experience
Olivia Hoare - Coventry -
On the 17th of December I chopped off 10 inches of hair and donated it to the little princess trust. In December I also fundraised to help with the cost of manufacturing the hair into a wig… my target was £100 and I managed to hit that in days! My grand total was £768+gift aid on JustGiving. I hope my hair and the money will help make a little ones journey that bit easier. Cannot urge people enough to donate in any way they can!
