Fundraiser Lola raises £1,200 with charity head shave

A kindhearted student has shaved off her long locks to raise hundreds of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Lola Spicer-Neal shaved off her hair as part of the charity’s ‘Brave the Shave’ campaign after seeing a number of close family and friends battle the disease.


Her fundraising efforts, which took place at Wolverhampton’s Firewalker Gym where she trains in boxing, have so far raised a whopping £1,200 for the charity. The 14-year-old’s hair will also now be donated to make wigs for cancer sufferers.

Mr R Oseland, Head of Year 10, said: “Lola was inspired to support this campaign and shave her hair after seeing a number of family members and friends suffer with cancer in recent years.

“Everyone’s lives have been affected by this terrible disease in some way and we are all very proud of Lola for what she has done to help those who are suffering by donating her hair and raising this incredible amount of money for Macmillan Cancer Support.”
