Pupils from Wetherby High School will be completely hair-brained on Thursday.

The school is running competitions for creative hair styling such as the one pictured.

And imaginations are set to run wild as pupils compete for the most out-landish and creative hair do!.

There will be wigs, accessories and hair pieces all in the schools colours.

This dress down day for hair is to raise awareness and funds for Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice.

“It is just incredible to have Wetherby High School doing Febru-Hairy this year,” said Wheatfields community fundraiser Sarah Jane Meyers.

“The creativity and enthusiasm of the students is fantastic!”

“We provide individual, compassionate care for people with life-limiting illnesses, their families and loved ones across the local community.

“There are many families affected by the work that we do and it is so important for them to know that schools and local communities are supporting them too”

Febru-Hairy is launching at The Light in Leeds City Centre tomorrow, Saturday from 12 until 3pm.

Lindy Hop dancers will be performing and there will be a range of hair themed activities throughout the day.

People are urged to go along and join the fun.

“We are still looking for groups to take part in Febru-Hairy and there are plenty of ways you could get involved - at your local pub, in the office or place of work,” added Sarah Jane.

Febru-hairy is a key fundraiser.

All money raised in Leeds will stay locally and directly benefit Wheatfields Hospice, to help provide quality care for people living with end of life conditions including cancer.
