In 2016, whilst watching Children in Need, Aidan decided that he wanted to do something courageous for children who were less fortunate than him. So, he set himself a long term challenge of growing his hair so that he could donate it to a charity that make wigs for children with cancer.

Aidan soon realised that he had set himself quite a challenge. At first it was ok, but then came all the brushing and washing (and knots!) Aidan needed some extra motivation to keep going, and what better way than to get sponsorship from his family and friends!

Aidan grew his hair for almost 2 years, and when he had it cut off at his school fete in June, he was able to donate 11 inches of hair to be made into wigs. He has also raised an amazing £615.75 (including gift aid) for Daisy's Dream!
