Two boys and a teacher shaved their heads in honour of a Hedingham School boy who died from a brain tumour.
Arran Tosh, 13, had been raising money for Cancer Research, unaware that he had the disease, and died just five days after his diagnosis.
He had planned to have a sponsored head shave for the charity on the last day of term at school.
In honour of his wishes, two of his close friends, Madison Sharp, 13, from Sible Hedingham and Toby Quinn, 13, from Halstead, shaved their heads alongside Rory Hyde, leader of media studies.
