A KIND-hearted Prestonpans hairdresser will donate the profits from her appointments on one of the busiest social days of the year to a young girl fighting cancer.

Sam Davie, 33, of Essential Hair by Sam Davie, based on Schaw Road, has released a number of hair appointments for Musselburgh Stobo Ladies Day ahead of the event on August 5.

The 33-year-old, who has been hairdressing for 14 years, will donate £35 per hair style appointment on the day to Flora’s Fight Against Neuroblastoma.

The mum-of-three said: “I am choosing to raise money for Flora as I have a young family myself and can’t imagine how hard it must be to deal with your child being ill and also wanting to do everything you can to save their life.

“I have been following Flora’s story for a while and I wanted to do something to help.”

Flora’s parents, Stephanie Kent and Jamie Gentleman, from Aberlady, have just months to raise £100,000 to reach their £312,000 goal to access a bivalent vaccine trial at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, which aims to train the immune system to fight neuroblastoma cells, reducing the chance of relapse.

Despite undertaking a year of NHS treatment – including chemotherapy, surgery, stem cell transplant and radiotherapy – the three-year-old faces a 50 per cent chance of cancer recurrence.

To book, with a £10 deposit required, message Essential Hair by Sam Davie on Facebook.

To date, £215,584 has been raised for Flora – to donate, visit solvingkidscancer.org.uk/appeal/flora
