After growing his hair long for 13 years, Luke Henderson, 21, who works at Rooftops Montessori Nursery in Richmond, North Yorkshire, braved the clippers and had his locks cut off to raise over £500 for the Neuro Foundation, an organisation that supports people with neurofibromatosis.  His long hair was first platted before being snipped off and sent to The Princess Trust where the hair will be used to make wigs for children who have lost theirs.

Luke then bravely had his head shaved into a grade 2 style in front of the nursery children to huge whoops of delight.  Luke stated “One of our children last year was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, she broke our hearts with the strength she showed us and I just wanted to give something back and help others like her”.

“It was great to do something worthwhile for this amazing charity, my only concern now is how I am going to hide my terrible dancing at future gigs, my long hair was the perfect disguise” he said.
