The Chair's Award - Grace Povey
This is a special award that the Chair of Young Melksham awards to a special young person who has done something extra special for other people or the local community.
After watching a children’s television programme, this amazing young person decided to raise as much money for the Little Princess Trust.
This little star decided that she didn’t need all her hair and donated 16 inches to the charity. This was a very big decision for her as she loves her hair and she did fear that people wouldn’t like it short. But she was determined to help. Her target was to raise £150 which would go towards a wig for children with cancer.
She campaigned and through her selfless act she raised just under £600 which meant that she had managed to raise funds for two wigs.
Her wish was to help make life as normal as she could for children who have lost their own hair because of the treatment they have received.
Her mum summed it up, “she has a kind heart”.
The award was presented by Chair of the Trustees of Young Melksham, Jon Hubbard.
