A year 8 student at Lincroft School, Oakley, was inspired to shave his head in an attempt to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, after watching an advert about the charity.

Joe Leonard very bravely decided to let Mr Martin, a teacher at Lincroft, shave his head in front of the whole school during an assembly.

He decided that he would like to donate the money “for anyone and everyone who has to deal with cancer”.

Joe has managed to raise the grand amount of £305.96, and hopes to raise even more through his online fundraising page which is at

Staff at Lincroft said they are very proud of Joe and would like to congratulate him on his bravery and enthusiasm, and hope other students will be inspired by his actions.
