A devoted cousin has had a dramatic make-over to help a young relative with epilepsy.
Eight-year-old Oliver Clare has changed from his usual brown hair to a vivid purple to raise sponsorship for Epilepsy Action. It comes after his cousin, Leo, aged two, was diagnosed with the condition.
Last week, as Leo celebrated his second birthday, Oliver turned up to his party with a distinctly plum hue to his barnet. And a change in appearance is not the end of Oliver’s schemes – the football fanatic has found a way to tie in his love of the sport with yet more fund-raising, by starting a World cup sweepstake with his friends to raise extra money for the charity.
