A brave New Park Primary School pupil has proved he’s a cut above the rest by shaving his hair off for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Tyler Robinson decided to go under the clippers and take part in ‘Brave the Shave’ after his aunt and best friend’s father died of cancer this year.

The seven-year-old said he wanted to “make a difference and raise as much money as possible” by braving the shave on Tuesday, July 12.

Tyler’s mother, Kirsty Spurr, said she was the “proudest parent in the world” after watching her son raise £235 for the charity.

She said: “Tyler wasn’t nervous at all. Me and his dad were probably more nervous than he was but he just kept reassuring us that it was just hair and it would grow back.

“Tyler decided to do this with no encouragement from anyone. It was all off his own back. As soon as he saw his hair he burst into laughter and wanted to show his friends the finished product.”
