Molly is a cut above when helping others

Raising cash for a good cause is a snip if, like nine-year-old Molly McC abe, you are happy to see most of your hair shorn away.

The warm-hearted Bearsden Primary School pupil joined cancer charity CLIC Sargent’s Big Buzz Campaign and by losing her locks gained £1,500 in donations.

The campaign supports young people with cancer, many of whom lose their hair during treatment.

Molly’s mum Vicky said: “Molly has always had long hair and built up her courage to cut it short for charity.

“She had hoped to raise £100 – we are all so surprised and delighted she has been sent over £1,500.

“Molly is sending her hair to the Little Princess Trust, which supplies quality wigs for children losing their hair through treatment, and CLIC Sargent will use the money raised to help young cancer patients.

“I’m very proud.”

The sponsored haircut was carried out by stylist Mark MacDonald at G20 Salon in Glasgow’s West End, watched by Molly’s mum, great-aunt Heather and younger sisters Emily and Lottie.

Local fundraising manager Rachael McLean said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Molly for becoming a ‘life-shaver’ for CLIC Sargent.

“Her new hairstyle is beautiful! Her friends, family and school have all been so supportive of her fundraising which has been a huge success.

“At the moment we can only help two out of three children and young people diagnosed with cancer. We want to reach as many as possible and with your support we can do this.””
