Frome fundraiser is raising money at a young age

A SELWOOD School pupil had her long hair cut short on Saturday 22nd June to raise much needed funds for Positive Action on Cancer.  

Megan Lewis, a 10-year old Frome girl, had her lovely locks cut off by the family hairdresser, Carly Punton of Garston Road, at Trinity Church Hall. She raised over £1,000 for PAC and donated her hair to The Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children who have lost their hair. See www.littleprincess

Meg had asked for sponsorship for PAC because her family have used the service when they really needed it in the past. To sponsor Meg visit

Kelly Lewis, fundraising assistant at PAC said, “What an amazing young lady.  We are so pleased that Meg decided to support PAC when she took on this big challenge.”
