Boy to shave his hair off for charity Mesothelioma UK

Boy to shave his hair off for charity Mesothelioma UK

A young boy called Lenny, aged 11, is shaving all his hair off in memory of a friend he had that died of  the asbestos cancer, mesothelioma.

Lenny has been growing his hair for the past 6 months now, and will have all of his hair shaved off the day before his 11th birthday, which is in 1 week’s time.

He has set up a fundraising page on JustGiving and all the money he raises will go to Mesothelioma UK, a charity that supports people affected by Mesothelioma to improve experiences and outcomes.

You can donate to Lenny’s fundraising page by following this link:-  Lenny’s fundraising page
