We provide wigs to children with cancer to restore their confidence and identity.


Over successive lockdowns without hairdresser visits, my hair has got longer than it's been for years. The Princess Trust is looking for hair longer than 7 inches at the moment, to make wigs for kids who have lost their hair to cancer. My pony tail seems to be about 10 inches long at the moment, and without a huge amount of grey. So I've decided to chop it off and donate it to them. 

My preferred "style" (if you can call it that!!) these days is a bob, though mostly I wear it tied back to keep it out of the way. I'm definitely not a big fan of very short hair on me; my hair is so bouncy that, unless I get regular cuts and use "product" in it, it makes me look like a mushroom when it's short. Last time I had my hair cut short was in the 1990s when I lived in Japan. I think the pic in the gallery was taken shortly after my return in 1997.

I'm going to bite the bullet and chop it all off, and just hope it grows back fast. 

Apparently it costs about £550 and hair from about 10 people to make a wig. So if you have a couple of quid to spare, help me make my bad-hair-days-to-come worthwhile.

from the Little Princess Trust:

When a child loses their hair to cancer or another condition, we'll be there with a free, real hair wig to help restore their confidence and identity. We won't stop until the research that we fund ends childhood cancer forever. Promise. Please visit us at to find out how you can help us give young people back what cancer takes away. The Trust relies solely on the efforts of enthusiastic community fundraisers. We receive no formal funding. Please help to raise money for us so that we can help more families.
