It was a close shave for Scarborough student Josh Cotterill when he lost all his hair to raise funds for an international children’s charity.
Eighteen-year-old Josh was sponsored by friends and family to have all his hair shaved off by Angela Skelton of Scarletta’s Hairdressing for Men in Falsgrave Road, raising over £200.
It is the first of many fundraising events he is undertaking this year for Childreach international, which works in genuine partnership with local communities in the developing world to help improve children’s access to healthcare, education, child rights and protection.
His efforts will culminate in a trip to Tanzania in August , during which he will spend nearly a week climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
Josh hopes to raise over £2,500 for the charity during 2013.
Now in his first year studying history at Brunel University in Middlesex, Josh is a former pupil of East Ayton School, Graham School and Scarborough Sixth Form College.
