Barkingside teacher donates her hair to cancer charity
A brave teacher proved she was a cut above the rest when she offered to have her long locks chopped off helping not one but two charities which support cancer sufferers.
Nicola Anderson, of Fullwell Avenue, Barkingside decided to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children with cancer and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Miss Anderson’s grandma was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, which gave her the inspiration and enthusiasm to do something positive for charity.
She said: “Macmillan have been absolutely fantastic with my nan, they really are caring and kind so I wanted to give something back.”
The 22-year-old had her hair cut at the Uppercut salon, Manford Way, Hainault where her mum, Sara has worked for over 25 years.

She said: “I am so proud of Nicola for doing this, she did ask me to cut it but I would be too emotional, especially as she has been growing it for so long.
“The stylists at Uppercut are amazing so I fully trusted them to do an incredible job restyling her hair to look fabulous.”
