Schoolboy’s Fund For Cancer Charity Rockets After Punishment From His School
A SCHOOLBOY punished in December 2014 for shaving his hair for charity has seen his fund-raising total rocket to more than £16,000.
Stan Lock, 13, decided to lose his thick brown hair after a number of friends and family were struck down by the disease.
He had the trim after setting up a donation page for Macmillan Cancer Support. But he was devastated when he was told his number zero hairstyle was against his school’s rules.
He spent a week in isolation at Churchill Academy in North Somerset.
But despite having a target of £100, he had raised £16,270 by yesterday.
His mother Mel Rees, 47, of Compton Bishop, said: “The support we have had has been amazing.
“I’m so proud of Stan. It has made his time in isolation worth it.”
“Stan & MC Support £16,000+ – Churchill Academy 0”
