An inspiring schoolboy from Point has had a haircut, after growing his hair for a year to raise money for charity.

Charlie had his hair cut by Moira Matheson, Attic Hair Studio, Stornoway yesterday (Tuesday).

He has chosen to support The Princess Trust who make wigs for children with cancer and is also fundraising for The Leanne Fund at the same time.

Chrisetta Mitchell, Development Manager of The Leanne Fund said: “We are so grateful to Charlie for choosing to support The Leanne Fund through his challenge as well.

“His efforts to help other children in need are inspiring.”
