Sophia Grace Karaket aged 11 at Thomas’s School, Battersea has undergone a massive makeover in the name of charity. Over the past year she has grown her hair beyond shoulder length with the knowledge she would have a dramatic cut at Neville Salon, 5 Pont St. A salon who she entrusted totally for this momentous occasion.
This will be Sophia's second dramatic hair cut for charity. Where she has kindly donated to Chain of Hope Charity and Little Princes Trust.
On this occasion, she has raised a whopping £5,000 for Chain of Hope, a Chelsea based charity that helps provide complex heart surgeries to children in need. It is estimated that as many as 15 million children die or remain severely ill every year through potentially treatable or preventable cardiac diseases. Chain of Hope exists to provide children from developing countries affected by life-threatening heart conditions with the medical treatment to save their lives.
In addition, Sophia donated her hair to the Little Princess trust which provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.
Dana from Chain of Hope comments, 'We need more good small souls like Sophia. These acts of kindness make a huge difference to charities like Chain of Hope and the little Princess Trust.
