Connor Lay was joined by fellow students at Bassingbourn Village College for the big shave, which is also part of his fundraising project for a World Challenge trip to Tanzania next summer.

Connor has been growing his hair for almost two years and will donate his locks to the Little Princess Trust, which makes real-hair wigs for children undergoing cancer treatment.

He said: ”I was a bit nervous about what I’d look like afterwards – but it’s OK, just a bit cold! I’d like to thank Tom for coming along to shave me and to all my friends for supporting my fundraising.”
