The Little Princess Trust has received the lovely locks of TOWIE’s Mario Falcone!

Having recently heard about the charity’s Real Life Rapunzel competition in partnership with Shrek’s Adventure! London – the search for the longest hair donation – kind-hearted Mario felt compelled to show his support.

After the cut, Mario said ‘It feels amazing to be able to support the Little Princess Trust. If anyone out there is thinking about cutting more than 17cm off their hair, then please consider donating it to this brilliant charity.’

Monica Glass, Charity Manager at Little Princess Trust said: ‘We are hugely grateful to Mario for donating his hair to the Little Princess Trust and for helping to raise awareness of our charity. We have the most amazing supporters and it’s great to count Mario as one of them now!’

Mario’s wonderful generosity doesn’t end with his ponytail donation; accompanied by his sister, Giovanna Fletcher – married to Tom from McFly – he has also offered to choose the overall winner of the competition from the 5 finalists at a very special event in London on 29 April.

Competition finalists will enjoy a VIP experience at Shrek’s Adventure! London on 29th April as part of ‘National Princess Week’. The experience will include a delicious breakfast courtesy of our friends at Starbucks, a VIP tour of the attraction, free haircuts in Shrek’s ‘Throne Room’, a makeover and goodie bags galore, with a few surprises along the way! In the afternoon, members of the public who are willing to donate their hair are also invited to come along and have their hair cut for free.
