Two members of staff at The Forest School in Knaresborough are set to ‘Brave the Shave’ in raise money for improvements at the school.

Michelle Czupcyck and Sarah Bennington will be shaving their heads as part of a fundraising campaign, as the school is currently in need of new playground equipment and to make their play area more accessible with paths and safety surfaces.

The Forest School, who support the learning of pupils with Special Educational Needs, are looking to replace old equipment and improve the gradient of the play area which makes it unsuitable for children with mobility issues.

Speaking about the campaign, SEN Advanced Teaching Assistant Sarah Bennington said:

“Michelle and I wanted to raise money for the children, so between us both we came up with the ‘Brave the Shave’ campaign.

“The children in this school are amazing and seeing their faces when they have new playground equipment to play on is fantastic.”

Speaking about her plans for after the shave, Sarah added:

“I can only speak for myself but I will be getting a lot of colourful hats to wear!”
