Postmistress gets chop for charity

A WOMAN had her hair cut so it can be made into a wig for children being treated for cancer

A WOMAN had her hair cut so it can be made into a wig for children being treated for cancer.

Sharon Caple, who is postmistress at Binfield Heath Stories, was also raising money to pay for the making of the wigs ? each one costs £350.


She had grown her hair for more than two years before finally having it cut at Dorata in Hart Street, Henley, and then donated to the Little Princess Trust.

Mrs Caple said: "It was a relief to have it done after two-and-a-half years.

?It was a bit shorter then I had hoped. I wanted to be shoulder length but they took the extra amount off so it will be right length for the wig.?

Mrs Caple has raised about £450 but is still fund-raising and accepting donations at the shop and post office in Arch Hill, where she lives with husband Gavin and son Jacob, 18.

She said: "The reaction of local people has been unbelievable. Binfield Heath is a very tight community and they have been amazing.

"One gentleman saw the sign and donated £5, then came back two hours later with £120 he had collected from people in his office.

"I'm really pleased with what we've raised so far and I hope we can make enough to fund a second wig in the next couple of weeks."
