Staff at a special school in Spalding showed they were smooth operators by having their head shaved or total restyles to raise money for much-needed play equipment.

Jo Doughty, Clive Bourne and Aaron Bloodworth went for the full crop, with Ana Deabreu and Toni Mayers having about 14 inches of their long hair cut off, Amanda Roberts dying her hair red and Jayme Hunt dying the tips of her hair blue.

The fundraiser took place at The Garth School in Pinchbeck Road. Staff were sponsored by family, friends and parents and raised £400 towards their target of £5,000.

Event organiser Jo said: “We wanted to raise money to buy scooters and bikes for our less able children.

“Playtime is classed as PE, so it is important that we have as much stuff as possible.

”The headshave was my idea, but others joined in by having restyles.”

Teaching assistant Julie Leach, who used to be a hairdresser, was responsible turned the school into her salon for the event. Jo said: “We have many talents here.”

There is a long shopping list of sensory equipment that staff would like for the playground, having opened a new sensory garden last year.

Following the success of the latest project, staff are now planning more fundraisers.
