This Broadstairs teenager is about to lose his mop of hair – but it is for a great cause

Alfie Percy is raising cash for Pilgrims Hospices

A 13-year-old from Broadstairs will be losing his mop of hair to raise funds for Pilgrims Hospices.

St George’s pupil Alfie Percy will go under the shaver next week.

The youngster is aiming to raise £515 in memory of his nan Val Davey who lost her battle with cancer in December 2012.

Alfie, who has also written a moving poem in memory of seven-year-old Bradley Lowry who lost his fight against the disease this month, will have the cut at home with dad Steven wielding the shaver.

Alfie said: “I have always wanted to shave my hair since I lost my nan. The hospice gave her the care she needed and they really deserve our support.”

Pilgrims Hospice is a charity providing free palliative care to people in east Kent, including at its Thanet hospice.
