£400 raised for Children in Need

Posted on

A huge well done to Head of Studies, Tim Whittaker, and student Richie who managed to raise a MASSIVE £400 for Children in Need today by shaving their heads!

All week Sports Services Manager, Matt Payne, has been collecting donations from Long Road students and staff after Tim promised that if £200 was raised for Children in Need by Friday morning then he would shave his head at Friday lunchtime. After hearing about Tim’s brave promise, student Richie also got involved to boost donations All our staff and students got behind Tim and Richie, managing to raise a total of £400!

Today at 12:30pm a nervous Tim and Richie entered the Sports Centre where they found a large group of staff and students ready to cheer them on! Tim went first, letting Progress Coach Lisa make the first shave! After that the hair come off thick and fast, by 1pm both Tim and Richie were rocking their new looks.

Well done to everyone involved and thank you for everyone who has contributed – if you would still like to make a donation please visit Matt in the Sports Centre!
