A Level student Jem Mousley, 16, will be shaving all her hair off on Saturday 19th December to raise valuable funds for Cancer Research UK.

Jem, who is study­ing A Lev­el Psy­chol­o­gy, Soci­ol­o­gy and Pho­tog­ra­phy at our High Pave­ment Sixth Form, said: I’ve always want­ed to make a pos­i­tive impact and this is my small way of doing that. 

Last year my mum jumped out of a plane to raise mon­ey for the British Heart Foun­da­tion and that got me think­ing about what I could do to help. After doing some research I dis­cov­ered that breast can­cer is the most com­mon can­cer in the UK, so that’s where I want­ed to focus my fundraising. 

 — Jem

With the sup­port of her fam­i­ly and friends, Jem launched her fundrais­ing page at mid­night on the 1st Decem­ber. She promised to dye her hair bright pink if she reached £500 and to shave it all off if she hit the £1,000 mark. With­in 12.5 hours she’d smashed her £1,000 target!

True to her word, Jem dyed her hair pink a few days lat­er and will be live stream­ing the shav­ing of her hair via Insta­gram (@jemmamousleyx) at around 3.00pm on Sat­ur­day 19th December. 

So far, Jem has raised just under £3,000. If you’d like to sup­port her, please vis­it her fundrais­ing page.
