DEMON barbers at Inverness High School have turned head teacher John Rutter into a skinhead as part of an MFR Cash for Kids inter-school fundraising challenge.
Second year pupil Travis MacPherson wielded the clippers after pupils paid 50p each to see the hair-raising cut take place.
And in a surprise additional “no pain, no gain” move, car dealers Dickson of Forres also put up a generous three-figure donation to see Mr Rutter endure a leg waxing session as well.
Sixth year prefect Craig Mundie also braved a leg waxing session himself, by children services worker Lindsey Dunlop, raising a smooth £165 in the process.
Fellow children services worker Lindsey MacDonald said: “Lots of businesses answered the students’ appeal for donations or raffle prizes, and the various school groups including Acts of Random Kindness, The Edge additional support children, the pupil council and the prefects really pulled together and were so enthusiastic. The winner [of the MFR challenge] will be announced on Thursday, and we are hoping some of the cash will buy picnic tables for the children to have somewhere to eat outside during covid prevention measures.”
