Story

Hi, my name is Finlay Tarvit and I am a student studying at Cedars Upper School. I am fundraising for World Challenge to enable me to spend a month in Peru with a group of students and volunteers to help disadvantaged local villages with basic humanitarian needs and also help young children gain valuable life skills which they can utilize throughout their life.

The activity I am advertising is my HEAD SHAVING that is taking place on the 30th of August. I having been growing my hair for the past 8 years and is now 2 1/2 ft long (75cm).

As well as the money being raised towards the trip, I am donating my hair to the 'Little Princess Trust' to help make wigs for children with alopecia or cancer.

Any amount would be gratefully received. :)
