Saintly snip for Victoria Bundock
7:00am Saturday 23rd February 2013 in News
WHEN Victoria Bundock decided to have her flowing locks sliced off for charity, there was only one person she would allow anywhere near the scissors - her favourite Saints player Tommy Makinson.
The caring 16-year-old from Sutton has held a long term ambition to do something positive for charity and decided to hand over her hair to make a wig for cancer patients.
Proud mum Lisa, 39, explained: “She’s wanted to do something for a while. She thought about doing the Race for Life and I suggested giving up her pocket money. She told me it wasn’t enough and she looked into donating her hair.
“Apparently it costs around £2,000. At least her hair will grow back other people are not so fortunate.”
Victoria, a pupil at Sutton Academy, has reached £300, but she is hopeful of seeing that total rise.
Lisa added: “We got in touch with Saints, hoping for the very least to have a picture with Tommy Makinson. They said they are doing quite a bit with Sports Relief and brought her down to the ground.
“She loved it. Not everyone can say they had Tommy Makinson cut their hair.”
