Lennon Wrighton and Kaiden Hockey, who study at Ely College, shaved their hair on Friday, December 11 for Macmillan Cancer Support which supported their families through the illness.

“I wanted to do everything I could to support her and for Macmillan, and I just wanted to say thanks,” Lennon said.

Lennon and Kaiden then caught up with Simon Warburton, principal at Ely College, who shared tips on how to live with their new style.

“I think what you’re going to realise, is that bald is best,” he said.
