A Y8 pupil at a school near Ludlow has undergone not one but two drastic changes of hairstyle in the cause of charity. Felix from Moor Park School had his head shaved in front of the entire school in aid of Arthritis Research UK.
Felix chose Arthritis UK as his chosen charity before Christmas and, with support from his friends, family and school staff, he raised a staggering £600 in aid of the charity. During an end of term performance, the opening act was Felix having his head shaved by boys’ matron Naynne Roberts. Felix had already gone one step further, dyeing his long locks orange, the colour of the charity, 24 hours previously to boost his fundraising efforts.
Arthritis Research UK believe that by harnessing the power of exceptional science, they can overcome the pain, isolation and fatigue caused by arthritis, making everyday life better for people with arthritis.
