In 2014, Shelby Paton won the Countrystyle’s Christmas Card competition. Now aged 10, Shelby has inspired us once again with her generous campaign to cut her hair (approx. 10 inches) for the Little Princess Trust and raise money for the Dreams Come True charity. On June 23rd 2018, she held an exciting array of activities to mark the hair cutting event. With coffee, cakes, refreshments, raffles, tombola and games to raise money.
The Little Princess Trust make wigs free of charge for children and young adults up to the age of 24 years who have lost their hair due to an illness and treatments. Dreams Come True fulfils dreams for children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions throughout the UK. At Dreams Come True they are dedicated to making sure dreams are fulfilled, whether it’s meeting their idol, swimming with dolphins, experiencing zero gravity or having their own specialist trike.
On Shelby’s fundraising page, she commented: “Dreams Come True give seriously ill children up to the age of 21 the chance to have their dream come true. Everyone has a dream and I feel that these children deserve to have their dreams to really come true. That is why I am organising this event to help these children.”
Countrystyle’s Head of Sales and Marketing Sonya Cragg commented: “Shelby has definitely inspired us at Countrystyle with her dedication to raising money (and donating her hair!) to such brilliant causes. We are really glad to be supporting her! Well done Shelby!”.
