Jacob raises money for Prospect House - Swindon
Trailblazers Interact Club
On Monday 27th June, Jacob Jackson, Chairman of the Trailblazers Interact Club based at Faringdon Community College and part of Faringdon and District Rotary Club, made a major sacrifice for charity, he had all of his hair shaved off in front of all his schoolmates at the Year 10 Assembly!
Jacob has been raising money for The Prospect Hospice in Swindon, where a family friend was cared for last year when suffering from cancer, and Helen and Douglas House, the hospice for children and young people, based in Oxford and a charity that Faringdon and District Rotary club has supported for many years,
The Trailblazers decided to raise money for these causes earlier in the year and discussed various fund raising ideas. Following to the letter of the Rotary organisation’s motto, “Service Above Self”, Jacob decided that he would lead from the front, although to date none of his colleagues have followed!
The shaving was expertly done by Mirella Draper of London Street Barbers, cheered on by Jacob’s “friends”, particularly when it got to shaving his eyebrows.
Tim Cowling, a member of Faringdon and District Rotary Club said; “We are extremely proud of our two Interact clubs at the Community College. They demonstrate all that is good about young people in our society, serving their community and having fun while doing so. Jacob is a great example to young people everywhere.”
To date, Jacob has raised approximately £650 for the charities and donations can still be made by visiting www.justgiving.com, JacobJacksonHeadshave or by contacting Faringdon Rotary Club.
