We read about Tobi in the @metro.co.uk this morning and since then, we've been receiving donations from lots of people who read the same article and felt moved by his story. Thank you so much, Tobi -- we think you are an absolute legend! Your amazing hair will have a life-changing impact on the young person who receives it; you are giving them the gift of confidence and a boost to their self-esteem at a really difficult time in their life. And your phenomenal fundraising will not only help us make those wigs but will also help fund ground-break research into childhood cancer, helping us save young lives. We think that's pretty awesome work, Tobi - and judging by the calls we've received today, lots of people agree with us! 😉💪👊
This is just a small snapshot of the amazing family of salons that form @salonservicesuk who have all dedicated the month of July to fundraising for The Little Princess Trust! Each salon does something different and we are hugely grateful to all of the teams that dedicate so much of their time and energy to supporting our charity. Last year, the group raised a staggering £52,000 for us 😅 We can do so much with this incredible sum - we are able to further our ground-breaking research into childhood cancers, offering potentially life-saving treatment to the children and young people who need it most, as well as providing our own range of beautiful, real-hair wigs for those dealing with the devastating effects of hair loss. If you are local to a Sally’s store then please do pop in and show them your support. You are guaranteed an amazing welcome from them all! Head to our link in bio to find one near to you 💜
Messages like this 👆👆👆from the children and young people that we help, make us feel ☺️☺️☺️, and motivate us to do even more 💪 If you would like to share that feeling with us and be a part of our team, please get in touch. We urgently need volunteers to help us continue the life-changing work that we do. Volunteering can bring about an amazing sense of purpose which in turn can have a hugely positive effect on a person's self-esteem. Perhaps your workplace would allow you to take time out to volunteer for The Little Princess Trust? If you are local to Hereford and are able to spare us an hour or two (or more!) of your time, we'd love to hear from you!

As The Little Princess Trust expands its wig provision service into Europe, we are very excited to announce our new Gold Standard Salon partner, @Magama_hair_extensions in Sofia, Bulgaria. Magama, a @GreatLengthsuk associate, operates from a stunning salon in the Bulgarian capital. They already offer free wig provision to children (and adults) experiencing hair loss as a result of cancer treatment and other conditions. In partnership with The Little Princess Trust, together we will be able to continue this work and help even more children and young people in Bulgaria. During our visit, we met Martina, a young girl who has been wearing the same wig for 11 years. Magama fitted Martina with a brand new Little Princess Trust wig. Martina’s smile lit up the whole salon, reinforcing our belief – that incredible things happen when we work together. #childhoodcancer #childhoodcancersucks #childhoodcancerawareness #charity #donate #nonprofit #fundraising #curechildhoodcancer #hirlossjourney #hairlosshelp #wigsforkids #givingback #hairloss #cancerresearch #socialgood #giveback #change #giving #donation #goodcause #donations #charitychallenge #wigsforkids #littleprincesstrust #community #volunteers #dogoodfeelgood #fundraisingevent #littleprincesstrust #cancerawareness
Please nominate The Little Princess Trust for this year's @JustGiving Charity of the Year! Our nomination last year raised our profile significantly, helping us achieve our mission to reach as many children and young people as possible, who are experiencing the devastating effects of hair loss as a result of cancer treatment or other conditions. 2019 has been a significant year for The Little Princess Trust; in addition to launching our wig provision services across Europe, the Trust has also instigated a pioneering collaborative project (more news to come!) which will directly benefit children with cancer from all over the UK and Ireland. Our recent round of funding into life-saving childhood cancer research brings our current total to circa £5 million pounds. We are determined to find a cure for childhood cancers; until that day, we will strive to develop kinder, less toxic treatments for paediatric cancers and will provide free, real-hair wigs for young people experiencing hair loss. So give us a boost; nominate us as the Just Giving Charity of the Year 2019 by clicking on the link in bio! #coty
Thank you so much to the amazing @tarabhavs - First Artist with the @royaloperahouse - who has kindly donated over 12 inches of hair to The Little Princess Trust! 💜💜💜 Tara is also fundraising for our charity - each real hair wig that we provide costs around £550 - we provide these wigs, free of charge, to children and young people with hair loss as a result of cancer and other conditions. Every penny that you can spare will help us cover these costs, as well as going towards funding life-saving research into childhood cancers. Tara’s @justgiving link is in our bio. 💜💜💜 A huge thank you also to our fab celebrity hairdresser ambassador @andrew_barton_hair for cutting Tara’s hair! 💜💜💜 More exciting news about Tara coming soon!
Huge congratulations to our Chair of Trustees, Tim Wheeler @TimHCJS, on being awarded an MBE in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours! 🤩 Speaking of his award, Tim Wheeler said: “The letter informing me that I was to be awarded an MBE came as an enormous surprise and I am still coming to terms with the news. It is both a great honour and a very humbling experience to think that other people consider your contribution to the world to be worthy of recognition. It has been a privilege to be able to contribute to the work of such an amazing charity, which not only impacts directly on the lives of children now but is also rapidly developing its research programme in an attempt to find kinder treatments for the future. None of this would be possible without the fantastic support which we receive from all those whose efforts raise funds for the charity and I am pleased to be able to play my part by turning out as 'Scissorman'! I am very much looking forward to all that the future holds for The Little Princess Trust.”

Have you been inspired by the #LondonMarathon to do something absolutely AMAZING for a fantastic charity? Run the @cardiffhalf #marathon for The Little Princess Trust on Sunday, October 6th! ‘Boasting one of the most stunning 13.1 mile courses around, the route takes runners past the capital’s most iconic landmarks with beautiful scenery and historic buildings. The predominately flat and fast course makes it ideal for beginners and elites. The race starts outside Cardiff Castle / Castell Caerdydd and runners then head down past Cardiff City Stadium on the way to Penarth. They take in the glorious Penarth Marina before crossing the barrage and heading to Cardiff Bay. Runners run right through the heart of the bay taking in the Norwegian Church and Wales Millennium Centre. The course then heads towards the north of the city and runners will complete a loop of the beautiful Roath Park Lake before the grandstand finish in the heart of the city at the Civic Centre.’ Join LPT for their first ever fundraising event at the Cardiff Half Marathon! With no entry fee you just have to pledge to raise £200 for the charity. The Trust will provide you with an LPT running vest; water bottle; the loudest cheer squad EVER and the best post-race party, as well as plenty of motivational tips in the run-up to the big day. Email email@example.com to find out more! Go on, just DO IT!

We've been growing our hair ready to donate it to The Little Princess Trust, so that it can be made into wigs for children who have lost their own hair. We are also collecting sponsorship money for the @officiallittleprincesstrust as each wig costs £350 to make. Amazingly we've exceeded our target of funding one wig and we'd love to see if we can reach £700 to fund two wigs!! Please follow the link in my bio to see our fundraising page or go to mydonate.bt.com and search for 'Bun to Bob'. Thank you so much for your support!!
