Pupil proves to be 'a cut above' for charity

A Year 3 pupil from Briar Hill Primary School has raised over £270 for charity after having inches cut off her hair.

Jenae Breeze, who is well known in school for her long blonde locks, had her hair cut in assembly to raise money for the Niemann-Pick Disease Group, a charity that provides support for families affected by these rare genetic diseases.

Jenae commented: “I feel happy and helpful that I have raised the money for the charity.”

As well as raising money, the hair that has been cut off will also be used to make a wig for another child.

Mrs Watts, Headteacher, said: “I think it is wonderful that Janae wanted so passionately to do this, it is such a kind thing to do. She has been asking all her teachers and peers to sponsor her.

“The money is going to a very important cause and Jenae and her family should all feel very proud.”
