A bold grandad from Norfolk made a real buzz when he had his head shaved to raise money for CLIC Sargent in support of his four-year-old grandson Caleb.

Norfolk grandfather becomes a LifeShaver in support of grandson

Ian McCulloch, 51, of Watton, got up close and personal with the hair clippers at the Café Britannia, Norwich in a bid to raise funds for the charity helping his four-year-old grandson.

Ian said: “I shaved my head in support of my four-year-old grandson Caleb, who was recently diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, and is undergoing treatment; it’s a type of cancer which affects about 60 children a year.

“I did feel slightly nervous about the head shave but children and young people being treated for cancer don’t have a choice about losing their hair and neither did Caleb. I know the money is going to a fantastic cause in CLIC Sargent because I have seen their support first hand.

“I am so pleased to have already raised over £400 and hope to raise even more to help children and young people who are coping with cancer and any support is greatly appreciated.”

Thank you

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Daisy Turner said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Ian for joining our Big Buzz campaign and becoming a LifeShaver for his grandson Caleb.

“Ian’s amazing bravery in taking on the Big Buzz gives people a chance to show their support and raise vital funds so that we can continue supporting families just like Caleb’s.”
