Three Rhyddings Year 7 students have raised over £70 for The Christie charity by having their hair shaved off last week.

As part of a school wide fundraising drive, 7VG members Bayley Redhead, Ben Griffin and Thomas Pilkington were sponsored to lose their locks by family, staff and classmates.


On hand with the clippers was local TV celebrity ‘Sunbed’ Jonny Kemp, well known locally for his appearances on Total Wipe Out and Come Dine With Me, at his Arena salon on Union Road, Oswaldtwistle.

The boys said: “All of our form felt that Christie’s is a really good charity and we wanted to raise as much money as possible. Losing our hair is worth it!”
