Sinead is a hard-working mum, with two children. Her son Daniel suffers from a rare genetic disorder resulting in learning difficulties and visual impairment.
One place that has really helped the family is Sense Scotland and their TouchBase centre in Glasgow where they go every Tuesday. In order to return the help the centre has given her, Sinead has decided to raise money by having her hair cut.
Hair cuts are something most of us have on a regular basis, but not Sinead.
“I’ve had the same old hair all my life, long, brown and straight. I’ve always wanted to get my hair cut at least once in my lifetime and this way I can say I’m doing it for charity,” she said.
As to what style she would like, Sinead has a certain celebrity in mind for inspiration.
“When I saw Victoria Beckham’s pixie crop I thought it looked really, really nice so why not go for a cut like that?” she added.
The money she will receive through sponsorship will be used for the parent enabler project through Sense. The charity helps families with children who suffer from sensory disabilities as well as physical, with the emphasis on communication.
Sinead is grateful for the help Sense Scotland has given her and her son Daniel.
“It really has brought him on and the girls here know a lot about intensive interaction and they did that with Daniel,” said Sinead.
She continued, “It has really got down to his level and so he began to gradually recognise Sense and knew he was getting good interaction.”
Without further ado, Sinead visits top hairstylist Taylor Ferguson who is personally going to give her that celebrity hair cut and help her in her goal to raise the money for Sense.
Looking in the mirror at her new hair cut Sinead was thrilled: “Wow, its great. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.”
