During the handshakes after the Wild game against Bradford Bulldogs on Sunday, Wild Academy junior player Ollie Cliffe had his hair cut off on the ice for charity.
The kind-hearted Under 11s player had originally started to grow his hair long to emulate some of his Widnes ice hockey heroes but then decided to donate his hair to the Little Princess Trust, who make wigs out of donated hair for children and young people who have lost their own hair due to cancer and other conditions.
The cutting was done by Widnes-based barber Michael Wilde who presented the MVPs awards for both teams and then went on to finish Ollie’s hair off properly afterwards.
As well as growing his hair long to donate, Ollie has also been raising money for the Charity and he is well on the way to his £500 target.
