Super League star supports Little Princess Trust

Rugby player to cut off long locks for charities

A star from the world of rugby league is donating his ‘luscious, long locks’ to The Little Princess Trust.

Alex Foster, who plays for Castleford Tigers, has also raised hundreds of pounds so we can turn his hair into a wig for a young person who has lost their own hair due to cancer treatment or another condition.

The 26-year-old second row has been growing his hair for the past two-and-a-half years with the aim of reaching a length in excess of 12 inches.

Having now hit that target, he says he will be cutting his “fantastic, luscious, long, beautiful hair” to raise money for two amazing charities

Alex has so far raised £1,690 on his VirginGiving page and the money will be split between ourselves and The Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract.

“I would be truly grateful for any donation you can make no matter how big or small,” added Alex.

“These charities need funding all the time to continue doing the incredible work they do.”
