They underwent the hair-raising experience in front of cheering classmates at Tollgate Primary School in Bury St Edmunds after deciding they wanted to do something to help the charity.

Mum Katrina said: “Stanley went first and I think he was a little bit nervous but his friends were cheering him on so that was a help, and then Vinny had his turn and and he seemed fine.

“I actually got a bit tearful and emotional as I was watching, they both look totally different with no hair but I’m very proud of them.”

The big shave, performed by barber Kai Cook of Carter’s in Bury, along with a cake sale at the school, raised around £160 towards the youngsters’ target of £1,000.
