Can you help this exceptional little lady.

On Monday Megan-Rose will be having her hair cut and donating her locks to the princess trust for other children who have lost their hair due to severe illness. I'm asking my friends if they can spare a small donation towards this worthwhile cause to help the charity purchase wigs for young children who are already dealing with illness that no child should ever have to. Being able to give a child who has lost their hair, the opportunity to feel like every other child would mean so much to them. Isn't she an amazing little lady. Please help if you can.   
JustGiving - the easiest way to fundraise and donate to charity online

If you can help please click HERE
If you have donated £3 or more you can get this fab download in lots of formats FCM/GSD/SVG/PDF and MTC Details Tina's facebook page HERE for the details of an amazing download.
