Local youngsters in cancer charities appeal

Monday, March 14 2016

Brave East Harling residents Portia Buck (10) and Amy-Lou Rogers (11) will be having their hair cut short this week to make wigs for young cancer patients who have lost their hair through treatment for the condition. The girls will also be holding a charity auction in aid of MacMillan nurses and the Little Princess Trust, which will be making the wigs.

Local motor racing venue Snetterton has donated a YoungDrive experience worth £85 to the auction. Aimed at 11-17 year-olds, YoungDrive is a fun introduction to driving where youngsters can learn the basics in the safe and controlled environment of a motor racing circuit.
Portia's proud mother, Andrea Buck, said: "The girls were inspired to do this as cancer has affected many people in both of their families. They then heard about the great work the Little Princess Trust does and decided they wanted to donate their hair. Once they found out the cost of a wig they wanted to raise as much money as they could to help with that too. The girls then decided to share the money between The Little Princess Trust and Macmillans so they can help people who don't need the wigs as well."
Many more lots have been donated to the auction, which is open to the public and will be held the Old School Hall, East Harling this Sunday 20 March at 2:00pm.
