Maddison raises money for Charity!

Maddy2On April 27th, a very kind and caring member of Year 3 had a very special haircut! Maddison who is in Oak Class grew her hair long specifically with the intention of donating it to the Little Princess Trust. This charity provides real hair wigs to children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other illnesses.

She had over 30cm cut off and raised over £200! We are all incredibly proud of her and think her new haircut looks wonderful! Well done Maddison - a huge achievement for a fantastic charity!
