Harrison Evan from Ely will have his blonde locks - which he has been growing for two years - chopped off this Sunday (September 22).

Supported by his friends and family, the 13-year-old Ely College pupil has agreed that each person who donated can each shave a part of his head in the charity challenge.

He said: "I am raising money to shave my hair which I have been growing for ages in support specifically for myeloma which my nan has. Please donate even just 50p!"

In just one week, Harrison has raised over £840 of his £900 target for Macmillan following his nan's multiple myeloma bone marrow cancer diagnosis.
