Today we’d like to say an enormous thank you to the amazingly selfless Leila-Louise for deciding to shave her hair to support Candlelighters and The Little Princess Trust. 
Leila-Louise decided she wanted to do something to help after her best friend’s little brother, Jackson, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in July 2019.
Jackson’s mum said, ‘Any funds raised will be donated to Candlelighters, an amazing charity who help support children and their families who have been diagnosed with cancer. They have been invaluable to my family and me during Jackson’s treatment which is still ongoing’.
Leila-Louise has raised a whopping £3,000 for Candlelighters, which could fund a whole month of our talking therapy sessions for all family members, providing vital mental health support. Leila-Louise, you are beautiful inside and out, and from all at Candlelighters, thank you SO much!
