Brave Mila has the chop for children’s cancer charity


A brave seven-year-old from Arnold has marked her first ever visit to a hair salon by having the chop for cancer charity, Little Princess Trust.

Mila Pouncey visited KH Hair to have her waist-length hair cut short for the charity which provides real hair wigs free of charge to children and young people who have lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other conditions. Stylist, Autumn, carried out the cut free of charge at the High Street salon.

Mum, Joanne, says Mila had mentioned she would like her hair cut so she told her all about the Little Princess Trust charity and the work they do.  “Mila has a big heart.” Joanne explains.  “She was very keen to donate her hair to this amazing charity and also to try and raise enough money for an additional wig, which she achieved in just 24 days!”

KH Hair salon director, Dawn Bramhall, says: ” Mila looks beautiful and seems to be very happy with her new cut. She was so brave and we’re all really proud of her. Little Princess Trust is a wonderful charity that we have supported for a number of years and we were very happy to help.”

Mila loves her new hair and is very proud to tell people why she had it cut and what she has achieved for Little Princess Trust.  “Mila was treated like a princess at KH Hair and loved every minute of it.” adds Joanne. ” Autumn looked after her so well whilst cutting her hair, constantly reassuring her how beautiful it looked and it really did. Throughout the past few years, some of my friends have benefited from these wigs and the difference they make is heart-warming .

“We are extremely blessed to have two beautiful, thoughtful children with big hearts and Mila is a true inspiration. Her hair will soon grow back and the exceptional work Little Princess Trust does for children who have the strength beyond all of us to keep fighting their illness is truly inspirational.  To some children, this will mean the world and we couldn’t be prouder of our princess Pouncey.”
