Hair today and gone tomorrow!
- 26 March 2018 -
Shaving hair for charity is a popular choice for raising funds. Three Sixth Form students at Sibford School in Oxfordshire have undergone a close shave for charity.
Fundraising for the OddBalls Foundation
Dan Harbron, Ben Hohorst and Ajay Witherford had their heads shaved in aid of the OddBalls Foundation. The charity that raises awareness of testicular cancer. It aims to make a difference to male health around the world.
Fellow pupils paid to watch as first Dan went under the razor and saw their locks fall to the ground. Dan was followed two days later into the shaving chair by Ben and Ajay.
Sibford’s fundraising week
The ‘shaveathons’ were the highlight of a week of charity fundraising in aid of cancer charities. Sibford’s generosity also offered support to Breast Cancer Care.
In addition to sponsoring the boys’ haircuts, pupils decorated t-shirts, painted nails and swapped their uniform for outfits in blue or pink.
Pupils raised a total of £579.96 to be split between the two charities. In addition, a Just Giving page set up by Dan, Ben and Ajay has raised a further £780.20 for OddBalls.
