Wacky hair day at City College

Wacky hair day at City College

Backcombed barnets and terrible tresses were order of the day at City College Southampton on May 15 and staff and students held a wacky hair event to raise money for their charity of the year, Naomi House and Jacksplace.

 

The fundraisers showed off their crazy styles at the college before marching through Southampton to boost the charity's coffers.

 

In total around £200 was raised for the charity.
