Cricket legend takes great interest in LPT wigs

Cricket legend takes great interest in LPT wigs

Graham Gooch has talked openly about his own hair loss

We were all bowled over to receive a visit from former England cricket captain Graham Gooch.

The man who scored more than 100 first class centuries was shown around our HQ by Little Princess Trust founder Wendy Tarplee-Morris.

As one of the first high-profile sports stars to talk openly about hair loss, Graham took a great interest in the wigs that we provide, free of charge, to children and young people.

Outside Sally's Salon are (l-r) LPT trustee Tim Lowe, LPT founder Wendy Tarplee-Morris and Graham Gooch and his partner Julia.

Graham, who saw how and where some of our wigs are made, was en route to speak at an event a few miles north of our Herefordshire home and was invited for a tour of the Hannah Tarplee Building by our Trustee – and fellow cricket fanatic – Tim Lowe.
