Ruby before, during and after her hair cut

Ruby Kersley, aged 7, has been asking friends and family to sponsor her for having her hair cut short, and has raised a phenomenal £454 for Candlelighters!!

Mum, Joanne, said “We are so proud of Ruby. She was very nervous, but when we spoke about how her hair will grow back very quickly and the children she’s giving the hair to won’t, the determination came back and she took it all in her stride from there on. She now has a beautiful bob.”

Joanne’s workplace has very generously pledged to match every pound that Ruby has raised. Ruby donated her hair to the charity, Little Princesses, to be made into wigs for children who have lost their hair.
