Anyone who wants to do their bit for charity can get their hair chopped off outside The Emirates tomorrow – so it can be turned into wigs for kids.

The charity event will take place at the Arsenal Hub near Drayton Park station and as well as donating hair to The Little Princess Trust, cash will be collected in aid of two other charities.

People can drop by the Queensland Road hub between 10.30pm and 3.30pm to get their hair cut.

Patricia Dempsey, who organised the initaitive, said it takes six to eight heads of hair to make one wig, and is urging the community to hop in the barber chair.

She added: “Over the years I have donated my hair twice, through my local hairdressers, but this time I thought it would be a good opportunity to do some publicity for the charities closely aligned to my interests.”

The event will also support SERV and the Richmond Fellowship. SERV is a volunteer-led charity providing motorbike couriers to transport blood. The Richmond Fellowship is a mental health charity.
