Big-hearted Vinny and Stanley Cremen will be braving a hair-raising experience of having their heads shaved in front of their classmates to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The identical twins from Bury St Edmunds aim to raise £1,000 in sponsorship with the shave at Tollgate Primary School on April 4.

Proud mum Katrina Cremen said: “The idea was Stanley’s. He said he had seen how people with cancer lost their hair and the idea of it made him sad.

“It was a random thing but my mother did die from cancer when they were just 12 months old.

“Everyone at the school has been very supportive and we were also to take a collecting tin around the Bury Bowl bowling centre where they raised £26.”
