Wig recipient becomes an Ambassador after raising £23,000

A wig recipient has added to her phenomenal support of LPT by raising thousands of pounds and collecting hundreds of inches of hair.

Phil Brace and Wendy Tarplee-Morris, from LPT, were among more than 250 people who attended The Big Chop which Sarah Titchen organised in central London.

Sara first began supporting LPT last year after she received a wig from us.

Aged 24, she was given the devastating news that she had Hodgkins lymphoma and she would lose her hair as a result of her treatment.

She soon set about raising money for our charity and raised more than £7,000 last year.

Sara said: “I’m so thankful to have received a wig from The Little Princess Trust.

Hair professionals gave their time to cut long locks at the event.

“Losing your hair is such a difficult thing to go through, so to be able to put a beautiful wig on and feel like yourself again is so special.”

Despite having raised so much money last year, Sara was determined to do more and set about organising The Big Chop.

A total of 46 people had 538 inches of hair cut while a raffle included prizes featuring Six Nations tickets, a signed Arsenal football shirt and Ferrari and Aston Martin hats.

Proceeds from the event mean that Sara has now raised more than £23,000 for The Little Princess Trust.

Phil Brace and Wendy Tarplee-Morris (right) asked Sara Titchen to become an LPT Ambassador at the event - an invite she gladly accepted.

LPT Co-Founder Wendy Tarplee-Morris said: “Sara is such an inspiration. The effort and time that has gone into organising such an amazing event is a true testimony to her wonderful character.

“She really has gone above and beyond, and the money she has raised will make a remarkable difference to helping other children and young people like herself.”

In recognition of her incredible efforts, Sara has been made an official Little Princess Trust Ambassador.
