Emily Rudge and eight of her Saints team mates took to the pitch before our home fixture against the Giants last Friday, to have their hair cut off for charity!
All hair cut was donated to The Little Princess Trust and will be used to create wigs for young children who have lost their hair due to various illnesses.
The girls had between 7 and 16 inches of their hair cut off on Friday.
Evie Sculthorpe, the daughter of Paul Sculthorpe was diagnosed with Wilms tumour, a form of kidney cancer in 2013 when she was just aged four – but now seven years on she is cancer free.
Lucy-Jo Sculthorpe, Paul’s second daughter decided that she wanted to do something to help and support her sister and so she opted to cut her hair and donate it to the Little Princess Trust.
Paul Sculthorpe said: “I know all to well the effects of cancer and other life threatening illnesses have on people. My daughter was one of the lucky ones who overcame it but I know how horrible it is for girls to lose their hair. My other daughter also donated her hair to the same charity so it’s one close to my heart.”
England captain and Saints star Emily Rudge said: “The Little Princess Trust is a great charity that helps young people in a time of need and I’m glad that we did something as a team to support that.
“We have had quite a lot of support from the players friends and family but it would be great for some of the fans and other members of the club to give us some support by donating! Any help is greatly appreciated.”
