His dad, Matt Robinson, did the cut at his barbershop, Mister Robinsons, in Church Street, Rugby.

Joshua has been saving change in his pencil case for the last two years and he has donated the £34 to Cancer Research.

He said: “I wanted to help people who have cancer and do something nice.”

Joshua’s mum, Becky Hadley, said it was an emotional event.

“He lost his grandma and his uncle Danny to cancer and he really wanted to do something to help others and make a difference.

“It’s heartwarming to see him do this and he’s such a lovely boy with a big, kind heart. I am very proud of him.”

The Paddox Primary School pupil has raised nearly £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support so far.

Joshua’s dad, Matt, said it was a pleasure to shave his son’s head for charity.

“It was emotional because I know much it means to him,” he said.

“I’m ridiculously proud of him and I think it’s important that we all give kids the opportunity to do something great and help others.

“This was all Joshua’s idea and he really wanted to help people after losing his grandma and uncle Danny.”

Joshua also completed the Race for Life at Stoneleigh with Impact Dance.
