Teen braved the clippers to raise funds
Jake Game climbed into the hairdresser’s chair to raise £150 for our Hospice.
The 16-year-old, who lives in Bury St Edmunds, said he had been overwhelmed with the support and sponsorship that his head shave fundraiser has received.
Jake said: “I felt speechless. I had wanted to do some fundraising for the Hospice for a while and I thought maybe I would give the head shave a go and see how many sponsors and how much support I could get. I am over the moon.
“St Nicholas Hospice Care is a charity close to my family’s heart. My mum sadly lost her best friend aged 36 through cancer and the Hospice were absolutely amazing so it’s time that I gave back what they gave her.”
The charitable cut took place on Friday 26 August, with family friend Amy Rutterford in charge of the clippers.
