A little girl from Derby who has been diagnosed with type-one diabetes is having her hair cut off to donate to the Little Princess Trust. The charity provides real hair and wigs to children and young people who have lost their hair to cancer.
Seven-year-old Molly Turner, from Oakwood, had already decided to donate her hair to the Princess trust but after a tough year for her and the family she decided to try and raise some additional money.
Molly's mum Amy said: "We lost a close family friend in January to a short battle of cancer and was taken care of on the Macmillan Ward so this is her first charity for the amazing work they do for so many.
"Our second charity is because in April, Molly, aged six, at the time was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. This came as a terrible shock but the hospital introduced us to a group called DDFC (Derby Diabetics Fun Club). This club meets once a month where they set up activities for the children such as craft tables and trips out.
"This has given her and the family so much support and to know we are not alone as well as advice and friendship for us all. She original aimed to raise £200 to split between these two amazing groups but she has already passed this."
Molly will be having her hair cut off on Saturday, November 5, at Katie Weeds hair salon, park Farm Allestree. People can donate via Molly's JustGiving page here.
