Optalis Senior Support Worker’s daughter cuts hair off for charity

A big well done from Optalis to Molly Story - daughter of Senior Support Worker - at Wokingham Learning Disabilities Service, Kelly Story. Molly is raising funds for the charity that supports the Royal Berkshire Hospital’s Buscot ward, where her brother and she were treated after their premature births.

Seven-year-old Molly had 12 inches of her hair cut off at Mac’s Hair and Beauty in Wokingham on 30 March.

She has wanted to have a radical hair cut ever since she saw a young cancer victim who had lost her hair to chemotherapy and wanted to help in some way. She will be donating her cut off hair to the Little Princess Trust, which makes real-hair wigs for girls and boys who have lost their hair during cancer treatment.

Molly was also keen to support the ward where she had been cared for after her premature birth so she set her mind on fundraising as well.

She was especially determined as she watched her brother Sam be cared for on the same ward after he was born five weeks premature. Molly’s mum Kelly said, "Molly was born 10 weeks premature, so for me and my husband to go from excitement to the shock of seeing her weighing 3 pound 10 was a lot to take.

"But to see her now as this lovely young lady makes me so proud, it's something we could never have imagined." To make a donation visit Molly's JustGiving page.
