Charity Headshave Pays Off

An amazing £1,180 was raised by three students who showed their support for a friend with cancer.

Luke Rielly, Andre Da Silva and Stewart Gavin wanted to do something to help when their friend Chris Hargin was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.

Luke, who is in Year 10, said: "At first Chris was a bit embarrassed about taking his hat off because he didn't have any hair, so we decided to shave our heads to make him feel more comfortable."

A hairdresser at the Autumn Centre in Corby volunteered to help them out and soon the boys were sporting a closely-cropped look.

They handed over the money to Chris and his family to help them cover travelling expenses and anything else they might need, and reported that their friend was lost for words by how much they had raised.

Luke said: "We're pleased with the support we had - if it wasn't for everyone else we wouldn't have been able to raise all this money."
