A five-year-old Suffolk schoolboy with a mission to help children living in less fortunate conditions has shaved his head for the cause.
Joey Kiel Johnson, who lives in Kesgrave and attends Bealings Primary School, wanted to raise funds for Save the Children after he saw a TV advert telling of the work they do to help communities living in impoverished conditions.
His mum, Sarelle Kiel, said: “He raised £110 overnight. He was so pleased.
“He wants to help them have clean water and taps, but had spoken about food and homes too.
“I’m so proud of him for even thinking of less fortunate children, even more so for wanting to do something to help.

Joey said: “I’m really happy because its a lot of money I’ve raised and I think it will really help children who need it to have everything they need.”
