A five-year-old from Auchenblae is aiming to donate her hair to a charity which helps children who have lost theirs through illness.

Fraesciante Stewart is looking to raise enough money to provide a wig for a least one little girl.

The wigs Little Princess trust provide are free to children. However, the cost to the charity to purchase one wig, on average, is £350.

Fraesciante’s mum, Kimberly, said : “When she first told us she wanted to cut her hair for charity we asked her if she was sure, to which she replied yes?

‘‘I looked up charities for hair donation and found the Little Princess Trust, requested a fundraising pack from them and when we sat down and went through it all with Fraesciante she said she definitely wanted to do it.’’

On Fraesciante’s Just Giving page, she says: “I’m getting my hair cut for Little Princess Trust because I want to help children who have lost their hair.”

The Stewart family are no strangers to fundraising as Kimberly and three of her friends did a sponsored shark dive at a Sealife Centre in February 2013. This was to pay tribute to Kimberly’s youngest daughter, who died a couple of hours after being born.

Kimberly added: “We are so incredibly proud of Fraesciante. She has been through so much herself over the last 18 months dealing with losing her baby sister at such a young age.

‘‘To turn around and so selflessly want to help other children is admirable.”
