Rayyan Kaderbhoy, 11, was inspired to raise money for Cancer Research UK in honour of his grandmother who died three years before he was born.

He explained how his dad told him that people "are losing young ones and old ones to this villain of a disease," and said: "As a result I decided to take action."

He has since cut his hair last Saturday and donated his locks to the Little Princess Trust, which turns hair into wigs for children suffering from cancer.

"I also wanted to raise money to help and support the research effort that continues every day to find a cure for this killer disease," he said.
