Harry Grantham, seven, decided when he was younger that he wouldn’t cut his hair until it was long enough to donate to charity - years later and the Dodworth St John the Baptist pupil braved the shave last Thursday.
His mum, 33-year-old Katie, told the Chronicle: “He said that he was quite nervous but he enjoyed it in the end - he was just sat there eating chocolate buttons.
“The first thing he did this morning when he woke up was to re-style his hair - it’s the first time it’s not been really long for as long as I can remember but it really suits him.
“Loads of people were telling him how good he looks and when his dad first saw him he was really emotional - he said it was like having a young Harry back.
“He’s raised more than £700 now which is more than we thought he’d raise - I’m so proud of him.
“He does like his hair short but he hasn’t ruled out growing it longer again so he could donate it to charity.”
