Éadaoin helps raise €2k with a hair cut
Kind-hearted Éadaoin Kinsella O'Neill recently took the brave step of getting her long locks cut to support two good causes.
Éadaoin (9), from Craan, Gorey, decided to help the Princess Emily Cancer Fund, a charity raising funds to cover medical costs for three-year-old Emily from Kildare who suffers from stage four neuroblastoma, a rare cancer. Éadaoin's family is in regular correspondence with Emily's, and the girls share similar interests. Sponsorship cards were placed in businesses and clubs in the area, and they were blown away when an impressive €2,100.95 was raised.
Éadaoin visited Natalie O'Neill and her team in Revive hair salon in Courtown, who gave her a stylish new look. The pony tail went to the Rapunzel Foundation for use in wigs for children experiencing hair loss.
Éadaoin recently met Emily's family to present the cheque and both girls thanked everyone who supported their efforts.
