India (6) inspired by mum’s hair raising charity efforts five-years-ago

A charity effort five years ago has inspired a Spalding six-year-old.

India-Rose Waite wondered why her mum Rachel Woods was completely bald in pictures at the Wygate Road home.

In fact it’s because Rachel shaved her head raising £1,000 for Macmillan in solidarity with a friend who was remission from breast cancer at the time.

Hearing about that has led Spalding Primary School pupil India to grow her own hair and donate ten inches of her golden locks to the Little Princess Trust.

Laura at Bel Ami hair salon in Spalding did the honours recently with India also having raised an as yet unknown amount in donations for the charity.

Rachel said: “She kept asking why I had no hair.

“When I explained it to her she asked what she could do for other girls and boys.

“I showed here all the videos on the Little Princess Trust website as I wanted to make sure she really knew what she was doing.

“But she’s really happy to have done it and loves her hair.

“She’s just glad she’s helped someone, and I’m so proud of her.”

India-Rose is also looking to raise £350 through the hair cut, which is how much it costs to create a wig.

She’s already collected around £50 worth of donations and a Just Giving page has been set up in her name.
