Connor loses his hair to fund expedition

A fifteen year old student from Bassingbourn celebrated the end of term in style – by having his head shaved.

Connor Lay was joined by fellow students at Bassingbourn Village College for the big shave as part of his fundraising project for a World Challenge trip to Tanzania next summer.

Tom McKnight from Royston-based barbers Carlo & Co was on hand to carry out the shave but fellow year 10 student Joe Heavey took the first snip.

Connor has been growing his hair for almost two years and will donate his shorn locks to the Princess Trust which makes children’s wigs.

He said: ”I was a bit nervous about what I’d look like afterwards – but it’s ok. I’d like to thank Tom for coming along to shave me and to all my friends for supporting my fundraising.”

Anyone wishing to add to Connor’s fundraising total should email office@bassingbournvc.net for details.
