Letters to the Editor

Dear Rachael, I hope this email finds you well and was wondering if my story would be of interest to Kirton News.

My name is Teddie Reid and I’m 20 years old and I am writing this email to inform you that on 16th April between 11am and 1pm i will be having all of my hair cut off to be donated to Little Princess Trust. Little Princess Trust provides wigs for young people under the age of 24years who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment and other illness.

The event will be public and held at the Coop in Kirton (where I work) at 18 station road where donations will be gratefully received, but I am also running a just-giving page online as the cost of making the wigs on average is around £550 and the charity is constantly trying to fulfil requests. I wondered if the event would be of interest to Kirton News to share some positive news and that featuring such a fundraiser might inspire our local community to give back when possible.

Please feel free to contact me and if possible come by and attend our event at the Kirton Coop. You’re more than welcome to cover the event on any social media outlets also should you wish as all support is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and I hope all of you at Kirton News have a great week!

Teddie Reid
