A hair cut for charity will be one of the ‘mane’ attractions at a spring fair in Mulbarton.

Anna Mayhew, who works at Puddleducks Playgroup in the village, and her daughter Maisy will be losing their locks at the event on Sunday, May 13.

They will be raising money for the Little Princess Trust, which supplies real hair wigs free of charge to children and young adults who have lost their hair through illness.

Anna said: “My daughter Maisy and I feel the Little Princess Trust is a very worthwhile charity to support, in fact it was Maisy’s idea and I have joined her to show my support.

“The Little Princess Trust visits people at home, offering them the privacy and sensitivity they deserve when hair loss has occurred through chemotherapy, alopicia and other traumas.”

She added: “Having three daughters myself, I know how much their hair means to them. Should they ever suffer the trauma of losing their hair I know this could affect their own self esteem and confidence.

“We are delighted to be doing this for the charity, for myself and Maisy our hair will continue to grow and hope that our hair will help someone affected by hair loss.”

The hair cut will be a highlight of the Puddleducks Spring Fair, which raises funds for the playgroup. Attractions include a bouncy castle, raffle, BBQ, tombolas and games, ice cream and refreshments and, for the first time, a soft play area.

A number of local businesses will support the event with stalls selling their products.

Puddleducks’ fundraising officer Joanne Doughty, who is organising the fair, said: “Puddleducks are proud to support this worthwhile cause at our own annual spring fundraiser.”

Proceeds from the fair will go towards buying new toys and equipment for the playgroup children, as well as paying for treats and outings.

The event takes place from 11am to 2pm in Mulbarton village hall’s Jubilee Room.
