Charlie Quick, president of Nottingham University’s Agricultural Society, chopped off his hair to raise £110.
Charlie recently featured in a Farmers Weekly article after he built his own auto-steer system for his tractor. While taking a course on computer programming at Nottingham University, Charlie decided to put his learning to use in the real world by upgrading his family’s tractor.
Some of the comments after the article suggested that Charlie could have spent the money on a haircut, which gave him and the society the idea to cut his hair for charity.
Jennifer Hall, the society’s excursions secretary, put the wheels in motion and organised a bake sale to help raise funds. On the day, a number of members of the society took the opportunity to shave Charlie’s head.
Robert Proud, a member of the society, said: “We chose to fundraise for R.A.B.I because we wanted to raise money for an agricultural charity. We believe that the work that R.A.B.I does is incredibly important for those in need. You never know when you or your family may need their help.”
