Student 'Braves the Shave' for Macmillan Cancer Support

Trafford College student Chloe Norbury-Morris has braved the shave for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The functional skills maths and English student Chloe Norbury-Morris said she felt compelled to cut all her hair off once in her life – and what better reason to do it than for charity. Students of Trafford College are said to raise in excess of £10,000 annually for charities across the region, through initiatives such as the 'Brave the Shave' appeal. 

Chloe said: “It feels very uplifting. I feel so much more confident and comfortable with myself and now I don't take long in the shower!”

The 20-year-old has set up a webpage where classmates, family and friends can donate to Macmillan with a target of raising £200 to help people living with cancer. 

Chloe continued to tell us: “I think my classmates might be quite surprised and question why I did shave my hair off. I just feel people who go through cancer need more support around them. I wanted to help the people who have to suffer with it and their families who have to be affected by it.”

Chloe successfully completed Level 2 IT at the college before going on to study maths and English. She wants to take psychology at University and get a job in the health service.
