To cut, or not to cut, that is the question for one eight-year-old who is holding a referendum on whether to shave off his locks for the first time.
Freddie Connolly’s classmates at Holy Trinity School in Tattershall and at RAF Coningsby’s Kids Club have already been voting on whether he should keep his flowing blonde hair or have the chop - and each time they vote they donate to Freddie’s chosen charity.
The charitable youngster, who has never had a haircut, has already raised more than £200 for Save the Children and people have until November 15 to donate and cast a vote on the further of Freddie’s hair.
Mum Amanda Connolly said: “My eldest son did something similar a few years ago, but he only grew his hair for a year, people will know Freddie for his hair, it’s a big, big step for him.”
When down, Freddie’s hair currently reaches the middle of his back, but if people vote for the cut, he plans to have a mohican, which he will dye red, the colour of the Save the Children charity logo.
Anyone wishing to sponsor Freddie can do so by contacting Holy Trinity School, contacting RAF Coningsby Kids Club enquiring at the Black Horse pub in Tattershall.
