Local nine-year-old shaves hair for NHS
Written by Newsteam on April 29, 2020
A young boy from Northampton has shaved his hair to raise money for the NHS.
Lias, 9, was inspired by his dad who was forced to shave without a barber to go to.
“After his dad shaved his head Lias said he wanted to do it as well for charity,” said Mum, Jessica Barnes. “He really likes it – I was worried that he’d regret it.”
Lias had aimed to raise £100, but managed to reach £370 on his JustGiving page.
“I wanted to raise money for the NHS so they can help save people’s lives from coronavirus. I hope they can use the money to buy lots of machines.”
