We’re in awe of nine-year-old Sophia from Alcester who had 15 inches of her hair cut off to help the children we support at Molly Ollys. Sophia was nervous, but she wanted to help children who’ve lost their hair through illnesses like cancer. She’s so far raised more than £1100 for us and her hair has been donated to the Little Princess Trust.
Her mum, Annie volunteers for us; “Sophia has been to charity events with me. She wants to help children less fortunate than her and this is her way of doing that. She is getting used to her short hair, better for the summer.”
Sophia said; “My friends are all shocked that I did this as I have always had long hair, but I wanted to help poorly children. I think Molly Ollys is amazing because the Charity makes wishes come true for children who have been very unwell.”
Sophia’s original target was £500 which is the average cost of a wish that Molly Ollys delivers for a child. The wishes can be anything from a climbing frame to an ipad to a day trip or something like Amazon vouchers. Each wish is an individual as the child.
Rachel from Molly Ollys said; “I am very proud of Sophia. For her to have raised so much is just fabulous. This money will make such a difference to the children we support. Sophia ia helping to make the dark days brighter for families facing the most terrifying health challenges. Thank you very much.”
