When Samantha Balderson decided to raise money for charity she wanted to catch people’s attention and make sure she captured people’s attention.
So she opted to let her four-year-old son Max and her auntie Tracey Eels shave her hair off at half-time during a football match between Stable tap AFC and Dersingham Rovers Allstars, captained by Adam Seal and Dane Hipkin
Max is autistic and his family have received support from the local branch of the National Autistic Society, including ways of helping him, such as using visual aids.
Mrs Balderson, of Dersingham, said that Max does not always understand what he is being told, but his parents have learnt that if they show him a picture of where they are going it really helps.
So far Mrs Balderson has raised more than £600, including £468 on the day and £165 online. Players made a donation before the game and a raffle was held to boost funds.
She said: “My goal was £500 so we’ve gone past that. I’d like to thank everyone who came along and supported us.”
