Anastasia proves a cut above after raising nearly £350 for EACH

Hair goes nothing!

Kind-hearted Anastasia King proved top of the chops after cutting her beautiful hair and raising £340 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

Anastasia’s little sister, Isabel, died when she was only five weeks old after being born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), a birth defect that affects blood flow through the heart.

Her family received care and support at The Treehouse, in Ipswich.

Anastasia, who lives in Shropshire, grew her hair during lockdown and vowed that if she could raise £100, she would have it cut and make a donation to EACH.

She sent her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides wigs for children who have lost their own hair because of cancer.

Notes to Editors

“EACH has made us all feel part of an extended family and, thanks to staff and fellow families, we’re not alone with problems. We always leave The Treehouse feeling positive, stronger and thankful.”

  • We care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, and support their families.
  • We offer families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support, including where their child dies – at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich).
  • Our family-centred approach includes specialist nursing care, symptom management support, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies and counselling, all meeting the individual needs of the child, young person and whole family.
  • We are recognised as leaders in our field, with a reputation for excellence and commitment to pioneering development and innovation.
  • We rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income and this year need to raise £5.5 million from fundraising and £5.4 million in income from our shops. The year before the pandemic we received just 16% of our total income from statutory sources.
  • EACH Royal Patron – Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
