Reception pupil Maggie donates her hair to children with cancer

Blog, Community

Reception pupil Maggie Pardo de Santayana had very long brown locks until last week, when she had it chopped off for a very good cause.

She donated her hair to help children with cancer, and has so far raised £596 for the Little Princess Trust, a charity that helps to make wigs for children undergoing cancer treatment.

Maggie, who had never had more than a trim, decided a year ago that she would grow her hair until her fifth birthday and give it to little girls who have lost theirs because they are sick.

Her birthday is on 31st May and although she has already had her hair cut, you can still donate by following this link:

Maggie’s gesture shows her great kindness and generosity towards others, something we very much encourage and value at Putney High School.
