Man shaves head after growing hair for three years to donate to charity

A man has shaved his head for a good cause after growing his locks for three years.

Daniel Burrows, from Tipton, began growing his hair after he got married three years ago.

A friend told him about the Little Princess Trust – a charity which provides wigs to young people with cancer and other conditions.

Inspired by this, Daniel decided to continue growing his hair until it was long enough to donate.

His wife Nicollet shaved his head yesterday (October 23). The couple now hope to raise £1,000 to donate to the charity alongside the hair.

Daniel, who works for Sandwell Council, told BlackCountryLive: “I wanted to grow my hair after I got married for a bit of a change.

“After it got past my ears, a friend told me about the Little Princess Trust Charity and how I could donate it to them.

“I had never heard of somewhere that could do that, so it made me want to help out.

“Since then, I have been growing it out specifically to give it away to them.

“I wanted to do even more so I’m raising money for them too.”

Daniel set up a GoFundMe page and has raised over £500 so far.

“I’ve always had moppy kind of hair and never had it shaved it before,” the 38-year-old said.

“I look very different, but it is for a good cause so my wife doesn’t mind!” he added.

The Little Princess Trust was established in 2006 and has supplied over 800 wigs to children and young people in the years since.

Their website states: “The Little Princess Trust provides free, real-hair wigs for young cancer sufferers or for children and young people experiencing the devastating effects of hair loss.

“We also fund pioneering, life-saving research into childhood cancers.

“We use hair donations and fundraising monies sent to us by our amazing supporters, to manufacture and fit our beautiful real hair wigs.

“Established in 2006, we have supplied over 8000 wigs to children and young people and have invested circa £5 million into ground-breaking childhood cancer research.”
