THE LITTLE PRINCESS TRUST

Who are The Little Princess Trust?

The Little Princess Trust is a charity that provides free, real hair wigs and support to children and their families through childhood hair loss. The Little Princess Trust makes around 2,000 free wigs every year with a service available for all genders up to the age of 24. 

Since 2016, The Little Princess Trust has been able to fund pioneering academics and institutions to research new and better treatments for paediatric cancers. The Trust aimed to fill some of the funding gaps needed for vital research into improving survival rates, reducing the side effects of treatments, and improving patient outcomes through access to new treatments and medical trials. Incredible work and a cause we very much wanted to do our part to support, along with your help. 

Hannah's Story

The story of The Little Princess Trust begins with Hannah Tarplee. In her own words, Hannah’s mum Wendy has shared these words about her beautiful daughter: 

 

'Hannah was a thoughtful and caring little girl who was wise far beyond her years. She lost her short battle with cancer at just 5 years old but in those 5 years she brought so much joy to her friends and family with her sense of fun, her incredible kindness and her wonderful sense of humour. She loved dancing and was a budding ballerina, she loved musicals and all things Disney. She was our Little Princess. 

 

She had just started school and was at the start of an exciting adventure. However tough life was for her, she always found joy in the most unlikely of places and she absolutely adored her little brother, George. Hannah always lit up the room with love, fun & kindness. The thousands of children helped by this charity, and the incredible life-saving Little Princess Trust funded research is a wonderful legacy for a truly amazing little girl.' 

 

Hannah was diagnosed with a Wilms tumour in 2004 and experienced hair loss due to her treatment, which was especially traumatic as she loved her hair. Hannah’s parents were able to find her a suitable wig after an extensive search, which they described as having a hugely positive effect on their daughter during her treatment. Tragically Hannah passed away in 2005.

  

Knowing the effect a wig had on their daughter, and the experience they had trying to find something suitable, as a fitting, powerful tribute to Hannah, her memory, and her legacy Wendy and Simon, their friends, and Hereford Cathedral Junior School founded The Little Princess Trust in 2006. Making real hair wigs free and accessible to children and young adults across the UK and Ireland in a space where they can feel safe and cared for, helping them regain their confidence and identity. All wigs are chosen by the recipient for colour and length. Once the wig is selected the recipient is matched with a salon and a specialist hairstylist where their chosen wig can be styled exactly as they would like it. The Little Princess Trust are now in the early stages of offering their services in Europe and beyond, all volunteers and fundraisers ensure that more children and young people are helped when they really need it.

Q + A WITH KIM CORPORATE RELATIONSHIP MANAGER

 FOR THE LITTLE PRINCESS TRUST

Q: How did your work with The Little Princess Trust begin? 

 

A: I worked with Wendy just after she lost Hannah and remember her starting LPT, whilst working part time at a local newspaper. I've always loved this Charity and when this job became available, I called in for a chat. The rest is history! I've been here for just over a year, it feels like my family now and I'm loving being part of this postive force in the world.

 

Q: At CLOUD NINE we will be hosting our own fundraising events in-house and encouraging our CLOUD NINE community to hold and share theirs. We would love to hear about any fun, unusual fundraising ideas for inspiration. Are there any particularly memorable events that stick in your mind to give us some inspiration?

 

A: Every day we get people contacting us about donating their hair and you realise that the world has a lot of lovely, generous people wanting to do good. It's particularly poignant when we have wig recipients who, after treatment are able to grow their hair and to donate to the charity. I remember earlier this summer we supplied a wig to a 16 year old and she talks of the confidence it's given to her, she looked amazing for her prom.

 

Q: We love the positive, empowering message of ‘hair and hope’ that your trust represents. We want to shout about this as far as we can and encourage anyone considering the big chop to go for it. In your own words. What would you say to anyone who is thinking about donating their hair but needs just a little extra encouragement?

 

A: We would never ask anyone to cut their hair unless they are 100% sure that they want to. There are many ways people can fundraise for us, as each wig costs £550, so it doesn't have to be a haircut. But if you are looking for inspiration then we have lots of incredible supporters and wig recipients on our social media feeds.
