In 2014 we reported on ten year-old Gracie Saunders who, for the third time, had her long hair cut short to raise funds for charity. Gracie’s granddad is Sheerness Freemason Tony Craig and Gracie and her family are well-known at the United Masonic Club, Sheerness, where Tony is the Club Steward. With the support of many Sheerness Freemasons and their families, Gracie raised more than £2,000 over her previous three haircuts. Please click here to read the 2014 report again.

A year on and Gracie’s hair has grown long again and, for the fourth time, she has had it cut to raise funds for charity. This time it’s the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a charity that grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. On this occasion Gracie was accompanied by her younger sister Chloe and her cousin Olivia who wanted to support the same good causes.

The girls had their hair cut on Friday 18th September and the girls’ hair will be given to another good cause - The Little Princess Trust - a charity that makes wigs and hair pieces for young cancer sufferers.

Since then, and thanks to the generosity of the lodges meeting in Sheerness, the total raised has increased to £965 which, with Gift Aid included, amounts to a grand total of £1,130.75.
