During the Year 11 Leavers’ Lunch Lauren Kilvington-0’Connor had her 71cm pony tail chopped off for the children’s charity, Little Princess Trust.

With City Gents hairdresser, Shareen Kellett ready to do the cutting and Lauren’s friends and family looking on, the scene was set for the scissor snipping extravaganza.

Emotions ran high; tears flowed throughout the event but Lauren remained calm and focused on her goal; to help children who have sadly lost their hair through cancer treatment.

The hair will be sent to the charity as well as a cheque for over £600 although donations are still coming in. Lauren was awarded a goody bag of Beever hair products worth over £60 by hairdresser Shareen.

Assistant Year Leader, Sam Downey said: “We are so proud of Lauren for what she has done for the Trust and Lauren looks amazing with a shaved head!”
