When 10-year-old Tom Bullimore decided to cut off his long locks, he didn’t just take a trip to the barber.
The Cobham Primary School pupil asked friends and family to sponsor him – and he had the deed done in assembly in front of all his school mates.
Tom managed to raise over £1,000 for charity.
Tom set himself a target of £50 but was overwhelmed with support from friends and family, including his sisters Katie and Emma, who collected £53 from their school, Mayfield Grammar.
Another sister Alice, six, also a Cobham school pupil helped raise money as well.
Mum Rachel said: “My son called my bluff. He had been growing his hair long for ages and always moaned when I tried to drag a brush though it.
"I threatened to have it all cut off if he didn’t start looking after it and instead he made arrangements to shave it off at school.
“The head teacher Jacqui Saunders has been so supportive, although she drew the line at shearing him herself.”
