Weʼve raised £555 to get Gracie a new top of the range wig. We're hoping that a new look will help her gain the confidence needed to help others with alopecia :)

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Gracie has suffered from alopecia (a form of hair loss) since the age of 11. Whilst most teenagers were experimenting with hair and make-up, she was experiencing name calling and bullying, leading to low self esteem, anxiety attacks and all time lows 😔
But that's enough of the negatives!
Gracie is now in her twenties. She has finally found a job which she loves as a carer, looking after people with learning difficulties and complex needs.
Gracie would love to get to a point in her life where she could also be a support to young people who also suffer with alopecia, as she feels that although she has a very loving and supportive family, she had nobody else to turn to for advice and help during her teens and early adult life.
Here's where I step in...🚀 I AM ON A MISSION 🚀 to raise £1000 to get a top quality wig to make her feel a million dollars. I'm hoping that a new look for Gracie will give her the last boost of confidence needed to fulfil her goal.
Over the next few weeks I will be hosting a variety of events, including a luxury hamper raffle and a yummy cake sale... Here's where YOU step in...
PLEASE come and support us by either donating here online, buying and eating cake at the salon or buying raffle tickets to be in with a chance of winning a luxury hamper.
Please kindly share this great cause with your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours.
Thanks in advance for your much appreciated support.
