Connor raises funds for childhood cancer charity

Connor raises funds for childhood cancer charity
Connor Stead
Friday 12th April 2013 by C. Freeman

Student Connor Stead has raised more than £1,000 for a cancer charity after having his head shaved in memory of his five-year-old cousin.

It is the second time that Connor has undergone a charity head shave. His previous one was in 2010 to commemorate his granddad and he raised a grand total then as well. The money from his latest close shave will be donated to cancer charity CLIC Sargent and Wishes for Kids, as a tribute to five-year-old Kyian who died from leukaemia last summer.

Connor’s head shave took place at Kettering Rugby Club when it took about half an hour to cut off his shoulder length hair. Family and friends donated money and took part in a charity auction to raise cash. More donations are welcome (see link below) and Connor has notched up £340 in on-line donations.

He said: ‘Having your head shaved is a good way of raising money and awareness. I liked having long hair but, as it is now so short I am having to get used to being a bit colder than I am used to!’
