A KIND-HEARTED churchgoer has chopped off her long locks for charity – for the eighth time!
Debbie Fullwood, who attends the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, on Preston New Road, donates her hair every two-three years to Locks of Love, or the Little Princess Trust, charities which provides wigs for children suffering from long-term or permanent medical hair loss.
Debbie said: “Has your hair grown to new lengths over lockdown? Thinking of having it cut but would like it to go to good use? I first heard about Locks of Love more than 22 years ago and I have been growing, cutting and then donating my hair every two-three years ever since. This will be my eight donation.
“Since 2005 there has also been the Little Princess Trust, here in England, who gratefully accept hair donations too. I would encourage anyone who is thinking of going for a shorter style to donate. “It’s a very personal and rewarding way to help out someone less fortunate than yourself.”
Gary Spencer, who cuts her hair at his Hill Street salon, Spencers, said: “Lots of people come in for a complete restyle so it’s so good to see the hair going to a good cause rather than just being swept up. These charities need a minimum length of 6-7 inches I believe.”
