14th February 2020 — This term, Exeter Cathedral School pupil, Issi (Year 4), took the bold decision to donate her hair to the children’s charity, the Little Princess Trust – a charity that uses donations to makes wigs for children who have lost their own hair through illnesses such as cancer.

After booking an appointment at the Jeff Goodwin salon, Issi was ready to make her donation. With her hair appropriately washed and tied, Issi was in safe hands as her regular hairdresser, Emily, set to work.

After the cut, Issi’s donation was measured before being sent to the Little Princess Trust’s head office; Issi was delighted to be able to send hair measuring an impressive 32cm in length.

This is the second time that Issi has supported this amazing charity having made her first donation in April 2018. Well done, Issi, for you continued support.
