Jaxson Rees-Child, an inspiring 11-year-old boy, showed incredible courage and compassion when he decided to shave his head in memory of his beloved nan recently. The youngster wanted to honour her memory in a unique and meaningful way, and he found the perfect tribute by raising funds for Prospect Hospice who cared for his nan during her final days.

Jaxson’s selfless act touched the hearts of many, as he embarked on this noble mission to give back to the hospice that had provided invaluable care and support during his nan’s illness. The sight of a young boy boldly shaving his hair completely to support a cause so close to his heart inspired his community.

School friends, family, and even strangers rallied him, donating to his GoFundMe page and supporting him on the day.
