Virginia, 13, donates her lockdown locks to charity

By Jill Dando News

Big-hearted Virginia has had more than half of her 60cm-long hair cut off to raise money for The Little Princess cancer charity after learning about the devastating disease in school.

Virginia Rulli-Gibbs, a Year 9 student at Worle Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset is raising hundreds of pounds for The Little Princess Trust.

The charity provides real-hair wigs to children across the UK who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

The ambitious and kind-hearted Virginia is passionate to make the world a better place – starting with helping charities. She then aims to embark on a legal career before becoming an MP, then Prime Minister one day.

She said: “I learned about cancer in a school lesson and wanted to do all I could to help people. I have been growing my hair so that I can give it to someone who needs it, through The Little Princess Trust.

“When a child loses their hair to cancer, The Little Princess Trust will be there with a free, real hair wig to help restore their confidence and identity.” 

She added: “I see all that is going wrong in the world and I would love to become Prime Minister to help make a difference.”

Principal Jacqui Scott said: “Virginia is an inspiration and deserves full credit for her thoughtfulness and action to help others.”
