Our young client, Amber Hosie-Martin donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust, an internationally-renowned charity that makes real hair wigs for cancer patients.

In April this year, The Little Princess Trust confirmed its partnership with the pioneering wig project, Hair4U. Our young client, Amber, had her hair cut by Holy Corner Salon Director, Amber Swift and donated it as a wonderful gesture of support. Along with other donations, her beautiful hair will be used by The Little Princess Trust to help make real hair wigs for cancer patients.

Hair4U launched in 2007 to provide free real hair wigs for children and young people who experience hair loss as a result of cancer. The Teenage Cancer Trust supported the cause for more than a decade and, this year, handed over the reins to The Little Princess Trust.

Joint Managing Director of Charlie Miller, Jason Miller says: ‘We are thrilled to have found such an esteemed and experienced partner in The Little Princess Trust. This will help continue the fantastic service that Teenage Cancer Trust, Charlie Miller and all the participating Salons* throughout the UK, have provided since 2007.’

Phil Brace, Chief Executive, The Little Princess Trust says: ‘We are so honoured to be collaborating with Charlie Miller. Our Trust has long-admired the project and we are looking forward to continuing the wonderful work started by Charlie Miller and Teenage Cancer Trust.’

Dawn Crosby, Interim Head of Regional Services, Teenage Cancer Trust says: ‘After more than a decade of working with Charlie Miller to provide real hair wigs to young people through the Hair4U project, we are delighted to hand over the reins to The Little Princess Trust. We believe it is the perfect partner to continue this amazing work.’
