Poppy Is Having Her Haircut!

This year, Poppy is having her gorgeous, long locks cut short, all in the name of charity, helping raise money for Issabelle's Appeal; which aims to give seriously ill children (and their families) something to smile about.

Poppy has been growing her hair for four years and will be having it cut on Make A Difference Day (October 28th). She'll also be donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust which provides wigs to young people who have lost theirs during cancer treatments.

All in all, a good cause from Poppy- a good egg. Please donate and let's help kids and families in our area through their tough times!

Here's the story of Issabelle's Appeal. A charity close to Poppy's heart; Issabelle was the sister of one of Poppy's best friends...

About Issabelle's Appeal

Issabelle was just four year old when we was told the devastating news that she has stage 4 Neuroblastoma, this meant that she had a 50/50 chance of survival!

Issabelle started treatment straight away, going to theatre to have Broviac lines fitted (known as wiggleys) and a lumber puncture to see if the cancer was in her bone marrow, which sadly it was.

They started her on intense Chemotherapy which lasted for three days and that was given every ten days , this would cause Issabelle to be extremely poorly, which meant spending most of those 10 days in hospital. This went on for 4 months.

Issabelle then had to have a large amount of Radiotherapy which meant going every day for two weeks.

Initially the charity was established in order to raised funds to allow Issabelle to have potentially life saving private therapy.

When Issabelle sadly passed away it was decided after a period of reflection that we would re-launch the appeal, with all raised funds going towards helping children fighting cancer.

All funds raised by our amazing volunteers and a variety of fundraising events are used to grant the wishes (up to £500 in value) of seriously ill children, providing them and their siblings and immediate family with something to smile about.
