Helping less fortunate is Niamh's crowning glory

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 07/02/2014

Like any young girl Niamh Lowe regarded her long flowing locks as her crowning glory. But her hair length was exceptional at over a metre.

Yet she took the very courageous step of getting it cut short to aid two great charities – the NI Hospice and the Little Princess Trust which makes real hair wigs for children with cancer.

He innovative fundraising drive has raised almost £1,000 to date and the 11-year-old deserves the utmost credit for her initiative.

We are told that young girls are constantly worried about their looks, their hair and their body image.

But Niamh put such shallow concerns to one side and saw where real beauty is – in helping others less fortunate than ourselves.
