Crime Bureau Investigator donates hair to children’s charity
One of our Crime Bureau Investigators shaved her head and donated her hair to a children’s charity, Little Princess Trust, that makes wigs for children and young adults that have lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses. She also raised more than £160 for the Essex Retired Police Dogs Fund (ERPDF).
After hearing about the work the charity does to help children and young people that have suffered hair loss, Tina Cooper from our Crime Bureau set her heart on donating her hair.
She plucked up the courage to shave her shoulder length hair on January 30 and has donated it to the children’s charity, Little Princess Trust.
Tina also wanted to raise money for the Essex Retired Police Dogs Fund (ERPDF) after hearing about the work the charity does to help provide financial aid towards vet care for our retired police dogs. She raised £165 in total for the charity.
Tina said: “I have for some time wished I had the courage to shave my hair off, I have always wondered how and what condition my hair would grow back through, so it has been one of these things I have had on my bucket list. Knowing that my hair will benefit children in need made the whole experience worthwhile.”
“The team at the ERPDF are on hand to provide support and finances to help our brave doggies live out their retirements in peace and happiness but they are an independent charity and they can’t do that without donations.
