A PUPIL of Cracoe and Rylstone Primary School is is about to have a close shave with a pair of hair clippers - to boost a cancer charity.

Young Henry Moyns, of Gargrave, is set to lose his locks at Cowling salon True Colours on Thursday, June 26, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The nine-year-old, whose father Phillip passed away when Henry was just 18 months old, decided he wanted to help the charity after someone he knew died of cancer recently.

He will also be collecting cash for Macmillan in the foyer of Skipton's Tesco store on the following Saturday, June 28.

His mother Laura said: "Henry just wants to do something to help. All his friends are right behind him."
