Before Easter, Niall Hambly in Year 11 decided he wanted to do something to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Having checked the school’s policy on extreme hairstyles and then asked for permission from the Headteacher, he had his head shaved at Truro College just before Easter, raising £70 to help ‘beat cancer sooner’.
Earlier this week, Sue Douglas, Assistant Manager for Cancer Research in Truro, came into school to meet Niall and to collect the funds raised. She also presented Niall with a ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ t-shirt and told us that the Cancer Research UK newsletter will feature his good work.
Niall’s selflessness and compassion has led to a generous donation to an extremely worthwhile charity. Visit www.cancerresearchuk.org to find out more about the vital work they do and ways you can get involved to help raise money.
