Georgia, seven, gets 10 inches of hair cut off for good cause
A SEVEN-year-old girl from Timperley has made the remarkable decision to have ten inches of her hair cut off for charity.
And more remarkably still, Georgia Lily Levinsohn, of West Vale Road, ‘smashed’ her initial fundraising target of £150 in less than 24 hours.
The Hayes Lane Infant School pupil then increased her target to £500 and, at time of writing, had exceeded that, by £268.
Georgia is undergoing the chop in aid of the Christie, the hospital which cared for her late grandfather during his cancer treatment, and her hair will be used to make wigs for children undergoing chemotherapy.
The seven-year-old will have the drastic hair cut at her Brownie group on January 30, the third anniversary of her grandfather’s death.
Her mum, Louise, said she was not apprehensive when Georgia told her of her decision: “I know she’s only seven but she knows her own mind, she’s very much miss independent.
“She said ‘I would like to help little girls because granddad was very poorly and I wouldn’t want any little girls to go through that’.”
Hayes Lane Infant School will also be holding an own clothes day to help Georgia raise as much money as possible.
“The response she’s had is phenomenal, I’m just amazed to be honest,” said Louise.
“It’s just spiraling out of control, she’s had donations from people I don’t even know , she’s absolutely smashed her target and most of her family members haven’t donated yet.”
