Going bald to support childhood brain injury charity

Leighton Milton is shaving his head to raise money for The Children's Trust, a charity which helped support him and his family.

18-year-old Leighton was diagnosed with ganglioglioma brain tumours in his right temporal lobe when he was just 10 years old.  He had the first tumour removed when he was 10 and a second tumour removed when he was 12.  Leighton and his family were supported throughout this time by The Children's Trust, a charity for children affected by brain injury.

Leighton has gone on to support The Children's Trust by working in their Canterbury charity shop and is now taking on yet another challenge to raise money to help other children affected by brain injury. Leighton is going to shave his head and is asking for donations to The Children's Trust on his 'Go Fund Me' page here or just to share his challenge through Facebook and Twitter to raise awareness of brain injury. Leighton says 
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to the charity"
We'd like to say a big thank you to him for helping other families affected by brain injury.
