Hair we go: Pinchbeck girl Megan (11) raises money for South Holland Little Miracles and the Little Princess Trust
A kind-hearted girl of 11 is doing her bit to help two good causes in one go.
Megan Batch has been inspired by her elder sister, Kaitlin (12), who goes to Spalding’s Garth School, to raise money for Little Miracles South Holland and the Little Princess Trust.
Megan, from Pinchbeck, will donate around 30cms of her long hair to the trust so it can be used to help make real hair wigs for children who have lost their hair during cancer treatment.
Thanks to her mum, Jo, Megan has sponsorship forms and a JustGiving page - and the money will go to Little Miracles, who help children with life-limiting conditions, disabilities and additional needs.
Kaitlin attends Little Miracles South Holland, which is a parent-led support group holding meetings in Spalding and Holbeach.
The youngster is autistic, has the attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder ADHD and global development delay.
Jo says activities run by Little Miracles are very important to Kaitlin and the family, which is why Megan wants to raise funds.
Jo, from Pinchbeck, said: “Megan is really loving, really caring.
“She’s very quiet - she likes just to do her own sort of thing.”
Megan goes to Pinchbeck East Primary School and is due to start at Spalding Academy in September.
She will have her hair cut at The Barber Shop, in Spalding’s Station Street, later this month.
Michelle King, from the Little Miracles charity, said it is amazing for a girl of Megan’s age to think of helping two such great causes at one time.
Michelle says the South Holland group has lots of activities planned for the summer and Megan’s generosity will be a wonderful help - and make it an even better summer for the children who attend.
