Story

I'm Sophia and I'm 7 years old. I wanted to have  a haircut and together with my mummy, we have decided that donating the chopped 12 inches of my hair to the charity Little Princess Trust would not only be a good way to mark this occasion, but also a good way to support this lovely charity to help other boys and girls who have lost their hair due to cancer or other illnesses. Thanks for supporting our fundraising page, xx.


The Little Princess Trust is a charity which provide real-hair wigs free of charge, to boys & girls throughout the UK & Ireland that have  lost their own hair through cancer treatment.The Little Princess Trust was launched in 2006 by the parents of Hannah Tarplee, along with help from friends and children from Hannah's school.

Hannah was the original Little Princess.  Sadly she was diagnosed with  a Wilms tumour and after a brave battle, she died in 2005.

At that time, finding high quality wigs for children was very difficult and only after a long search was a suitable company eventually found that could make a wig for Hannah.  She very much enjoyed wearing her wig, particularly on special occasions. After Hannah passed away, so many kind people offered help, financial and practical.  Hannah’s parents, Wendy and Simon, decided that the most fitting way to use this help was to launch a charity dedicated to providing specialist real hair children’s wigs. Like so many Little Princesses, Hannah loved her hair and losing it was very traumatic.

Since its inception, the charity has now helped thousands of boys and girls. They work with suppliers throughout the UK and Ireland, all of whom supply beautiful, real hair wigs. They continue to look for new suppliers all the time.The Trust, founded in memory of 5 year old Hannah Tarplee, supplies the best real-hair wigs available, free of charge, to children throughout the whole of the UK and across Ireland, that have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other illnesses.
