The Little Princess Trust gives Hair and Hope to children and young people by providing wigs and funding vital research into childhood cancers.

The charity provides around 2,000 real hair wigs every year to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or due to other conditions such as Alopecia.

The children and young people helped by The Little Princess Trust explain just how much the wigs help to restore their confidence and identity.

But the charity can only provide its free service thanks to the selfless efforts of its supporters, many of whom not only donate their hair but also fundraise to help the charity turn their long locks into beautiful wigs.

The greatest demand is for The Little Princess Trust’s longest wigs and so the charity encourages supporters to donate hair measuring at least 12 inches in length.

Hair must be dry and in a good condition when cut to ensure it can be used in a wig.

The Little Princess Trust was set up in 2005 in memory of Hannah Tarplee. A year earlier, she had been diagnosed with a Wilms Tumour and the loss of her hair was especially traumatic.

Her parents felt the most fitting tribute to the five-year-old would be a charity dedicated to providing wigs to children who had lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other conditions.

The Little Princess Trust was born and the charity has now provided wigs to more than 15,000 young people of all genders.

The charity is also now one of the most significant charity funders of childhood cancer research in the UK and has committed more than £20million to projects focused on finding kinder and more effective treatments for childhood cancers.

We at Hair Closures UK are proud to support this amazing charity and hope that our customers will too! Just click on the donate button at checkout to make a donation of money, if you wish to donate your hair which helps to make and produce the wigs, send at least 6 inches of your natural hair to the Little Princess Trust direct.

Working together to make a difference for children suffering from hair loss.
