KING’S Ely Sixth Form student, James Wilkinson, is braving the shave for charity next month!

James, who is in Year 12, has decided to shave all of his hair off to raise as much money as he can for Cancer Research UK.

James, who has been at King’s Ely since joining King’s Ely Acremont Nursery, said: “Cancer has affected my life, people close to me and countless others. Cancer can cause so much devastation and harm to anyone and I feel like I want to do something to help fund research into the disease. What’s the point in believing something should be done if you aren’t going to be the person to do it?”

James has raised around £100 in sponsorship so far. To donate to his cause, visit:

Well done James – we look forward to receiving the after photos!
