Clevedon School students have shaved off their hair to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Sam Barcham, Taylor Stephens, Jack Valentine and Tom Haddon each wanted to raise awareness of the illness for their own personal reasons, so had their heads shaved at Clevedon Rugby Club.

They have since gone on to raise more than £2,200, with even more collected through cake sales and competitions.

Headteacher Jim Smith said: “I am so proud of the boys.

“They displayed so many of the values of the school that we hold dear, notably leadership, highly developed organisational and collaborative skills and a high degree of sensitivity and empathy.”

Earlier this month, the school raised funds for four other charities after rowing for 24 hours.
