A student at the University of Bradford will shave her head for charity tomorrow.

Rosie Ellingham will take the clippers to her hair at 2pm in the Students’ Union to raise money for the charity Young Minds, and two other local charities.

Young Minds is committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people. Rosie said: “I have chosen to raise money for Young Minds for several reasons. I’m choosing to shave my head in particular for this cause as a common response to this is that I must be ‘mental’ to do this.

“ I really want to encourage a more positive view on the way we see mental health.”

All online donations will be going to Young Minds (http://www.youngminds.org.uk/) and any donations received on the day will go towards the Crocus Cancer Appeal and Bradford Disability Sports and Leisure.
