Emma Turnbull, the Marketing Support & Communications Coordinator for Brake Engineering will be raising money for the Little Princess Trust by having her hair cut. On the 30th of September an event will be held where Emma will have 12 inches of her hair lopped off for the charity.
Brake Engineering is known for being one of the leading parts suppliers to the UK aftermarket. It is great to see larger companies getting involved in fundraising events and using their name and presence to raise money for such a good cause.
The Little Princess Trust is a charity that works to raise money for cancer research hand also gives real hair wigs to children that have lost their own hair while undergoing cancer treatment or battling other illnesses. The charity has seen a number of children coping with the hair loss well, but for others it can be a very upsetting time. The Little Princess Trust working with Childrenâs Cancer and Leukaemia Group has awarded more than £500,000 to fund research into childhood cancers in 2016. On top of this funding, the charity managed to give away £106,000 to a range of other research projects at the start of 2017. The research funding total raised by The Little Princess Trust has now reached £1.2 million.
For the Marketing Support & Communications Coordinator, this is the first fundraising event of this nature she has been involved in. Emmaâs hair naturally blonde and very long, reaching her hips. This fundraising event will see a significant amount of this length cut off in order to raise money for the charity that helps young children battling a range of serious illnesses.
This is an amazing charity fundraising event and hopefully Emma will be able to raise a significant amount for The Little Princess Trust and have a positive impact on young children.
