Greta Nicolle, one of Hubert Nicolle’s daughters, has been instrumental in raising over £5,000 for PPBF through the organisation of a charity haircut. In addition, Greta and her friends from Vauvert Primary School donated their cut hair to The Little Princess Trust, a UK charity that provides real hair wigs to children and young people that have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other conditions. Greta was inspired to organise the event in memory of her sister Aggie, who died from cancer in 2016, as she would have been 10 years old on 23 July. Greta was joined by seven friends from her school, which Aggie also attended, as well as the headmaster and caretaker, who both “braved the shave”. The day helped raise money for Aggie’s Burrow, one of PPBF’s two flats in Southampton, which are used to provide free accommodation to children and their families who are receiving treatment in Southampton.
The Magpie Charity Trust c/o Altair Partners Jersey donated £250 to the event and all the money raised will go towards assisting with paying the running costs of Aggie’s Burrow.
