A BRAVE ten-year-old was the talk of his school after shaving his hair off for Comic Relief.

Christopher Allen, a pupil at Springfield Juniors in Ipswich, took on the challenge and raised more than £400 for his efforts.

The youngster said: “I did it in front of the whole school and my friends kept asking why I was doing it.

“I did it for charity and I’m really proud.”

His mum Johanna said: “He was really good and we are so proud of him. He did really well.

“He has always talked about doing things for charity and we had a think about ideas and this is what we came off with.

“He always says that when he makes it as a footballer he would give some of his wages to charity.
