Long-haired Josh takes the plunge for char­ity

The Oban Times - - News -

A LONG-haired 11-year- old made a de­ci­sion to trim his locks af­ter a woman asked if he was a boy or a girl.

Dun­beg pri­mary seven pupil Josh Brack de­cided to do­nate his hair to a char­ity that sup­ports chil­dren with can­cer.

His mum, Gail, ex­plained: ‘Josh has had long hair for years but last week yet another older lady asked him if he was a girl or a boy.

‘He was quite up­set and de­cided he would get it cut. In­stead of wast­ing his hair, we checked through a can­cer re­search web­site how to do­nate it for chil­dren with can­cer.

‘It had to be freshly washed with no prod­ucts, a min­i­mum of seven inches long and cut off in bunches.’

Hair­dresser Hay­ley Ed­wards at Ruther­fords in Oban helped to wash and re­move the hair by ty­ing it into four pleats be­fore cut­ting it off.

Gail and Josh then put the four pig­tails in a clear sand­wich bag and posted it off to the Lit­tle Princess Trust hair do­na­tion.

BE­FORE AND AF­TER: Josh Brack fi­nally got his hair cut af­ter be­ing asked, yet again, if he was a

boy or a girl
