Rory Burns to cut hair for charity - Kia Oval Skip to main content

Surrey skipper Rory Burns is having his trademark flowing locks cut for charity.

The Surrey opener’s hair is now 14 inches long and, once cut, will be made into a natural wig by the Little Princess Trust. The charity provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or to other conditions such as Alopecia.

In addition to donating his hair, Burns raised the £743 for the charity to cover the cost of making a wig for a young person. The Club Captain raised the amount within 24 hours of opening the fundraiser thanks to the generous support of the cricket family.

Having reached that amount, Burns is asking for any Surrey fans or Members who would like to support him to donate Dravet Syndrome UK in memory of Florence Dunn.

Dravet Syndrome UK are a charity dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by Dravet Syndrome through support, education and medical research. The charity supported Florence, and the Dunn family, throughout her life with the condition.

Rory Burns, Surrey Captain, said “After many a request, you’ll all be pleased to hear I am finally getting a hair cut! The Little Princess Trust make an incredible difference to young people who have lost their own hair and I’m glad that my hair will go to such a good cause.

“As well as raising funds to help turn my hair into a wig for a child, I wanted to help raise funds for Dravet Syndrome UK who provided the whole Dunn family with support over the last few years.”
