Locks of Love is a non-profit organisation that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from hair loss from any illness.

This is the second time the St Anthony’s School student has made the cut.

‘The first time I did it I was really nervous, but then I started thinking about all the kids with no hair and I thought, ‘OK, I need to do this’,’ Emily said.

For anyone thinking about donating, the choice is clear, according to Emily.

‘Don’t stress ” if you were bald, just think, you would want some hair, wouldn’t you? They want hair and you have hair to donate.’
