A Tubbercurry woman is cutting 14-inches off her hair for sick children and is appealing to other likeminded people in the south Sligo area to join her,
Mary Quinn-Henry has bright braids that flow down to her waist, and she will be getting her locks chopped on October 21 next for The Little Princess Trust, which provides wigs to the LauraLynn charity.
The Little Princess Trust produce free real hair wigs for children and adults who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions
“I gave a good bit of hair three years ago during an event organised by the carers and I’ve had it cut three times now for charity,” she explained. “It’s great to have it in the braids and it’s unique. I’d like to encourage others in the area to join me on October 21 at Jo’s Barber in Tubbercurry.
“This is probably my last time to cut it because I’m 65 and I’ve grey hair starting so eventually I’ll have it grey, and you can’t give it to the children then.
“My sister Florence lives in America, and she does it every second year as well.”
Mary, from Achonry in Tubbercurry, said if anyone would like to get their hair cut with her or donate their hair later this month, they can contact her on [email protected]
