A YOUNGSTER is having his head shaved to raise money to help battle cancer.

Jake Barker, 12, is getting his hair cut at The Green Room in Southsea next month as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s Brave the Shave initiative.

His mother Terri Barber, 31, said: ‘We’ve lost a few family members in the past from cancer, and that really inspired Jake to take this on.’

Jake hopes to raise £150; to donate visit
