Head shaved for Ben’s Den charity

george frithFifteen year old George Frith as had his head shaved for the charity Ben’s Den, raising £100 so far.

His mum Rachel told us: “Tracey Parker is a teaching assistant at Kirk Hallam Community Academy where George goes, and she was chatting to him one day about her son Ben who died of leukemia. It got George thinking and he decided he wanted to do something to raise money for her charity which gives caravan holidays to families affected by the illness.”

The shave took place at Shelley’s Barbers, Granby Street, yesterday (Friday).

George, who lives at Shipley View, has also previously raised money for the homeless and dog charities.Advertise here
