St Cuthbert & The First Martyrs Pupil Raises Funds for Children's Cancer Charity St Cuthbert & The First Martyrs Pupil Raises Funds for Children's Cancer Charity

Kind-hearted pupil Anthea Felisco was so moved by seeing a TV advert about children who lose their hair through cancer treatment, she wanted to do something to help.

 

The Year 2 pupil at St Cuthbert & The First Martyrs Catholic Primary School, Bradford, decided to have her 28 inch long pony tail cut off by hairdresser Lindsey Holmes and donated the hair to the Little Princess Trust. The Trust creates wigs from real hair which are used by children with cancer who have lost theirs.

 

Anthea, aged 7, whose mother is a cancer nurse at Bradford Royal Infirmary, is also being sponsored for her hair loss and hopes to raise more than £200 for the Children With Cancer charity.

 

Rachel Winnery, Head of School, said: “We are really proud of Anthea’s kind-hearted efforts to help children with cancer. We are blessed at St Cuthbert’s with children who go the extra mile to help others. We have asked parents to leave donations for Children With Cancer at the school office.”
