On Friday 1st December, close friends and Sacks Morasha Jewish Primary School students Sophia Shababo (10) and Sophie Lunzer (10) chose to cut their long hair in aid of Chai. Their selfless act has raised over £2,000 so far, far exceeding their initial target of £500.

Speaking of why they chose to donate the funds raised in sponsorship to Chai, Sophia and Sophie said: “We chose Chai because a lot of people will know someone who will need the wonderful support of the Chai Cancer Care teams and we want to help make that happen to its maximum potential. We would like to thank everyone for their generosity and overwhelming support!”

The girls have also donated their hair to Zichron Menachem, to make much-needed wigs for children who have lost their hair during treatment.

Chai would like to thank Sophia and Sophie for their bravery, dedication and amazing fundraising efforts!
