Haines Watts supports childhood cancer research

Business Advisors Haines Watts are taking their strapline ‘Local Matters, National Strength’ to another level as they help raise awareness of childhood cancer in support of two national charities.

Northampton-based Marketing Executive Ria Goff is donating her long blonde hair to The Little Princess Trust (LPT) while fundraising for the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG).

The Trust provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people of hair loss, across the UK and Ireland, while at the same time, funding project grants through CCLG.

CCLG is the central hub for childhood cancer research through the specialist expertise of its members, who work in conjunction with Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust as well as a host of other childhood cancer treatment centres and shared care units across the country.

Head of Marketing & Operations at Haines Watts Chris Dell says: “As a brand we’re very active in supporting charitable causes and it’s commendable that Ria is committing to having her hair cut so short”.

Chris commented: “It’s both humbling and inspiring to hear how significant a difference this can have on the children and young adults receiving their ‘new hair’ at such a difficult time in their lives”.
