A Dungiven teenager is having his trademark quiff shaved off for charity.

Kavin Devine is going for the chop to raise funds for a charity trip to Kenya this summer along with students from other schools in the Roe Valley Learning Community.

The Year 13 St. Patrick’s College student is volunteering his skills at several projects at orphanges in Kenya.

Principal Michael Gormley said: “We are very proud of Kavin and his plans to volunteer in Kenya this summer. Everyone knows how much his image and grooming mean to him and the fact that he is prepared to ‘brave the shave’ and lose ‘the quiff’ demonstrates how committed he really is to raising funds and awareness on behalf of the Kenyan Orphanages.”

Kavin’s ‘quiff’ is getting the chop in the school assembly hall on April 29th at 1.15pm by a past pupil of the school, Jordan O’Neill, who runs his own business, 22 Male Image and Grooming, at New St., Dungiven. Donations can be made through the school office or any of its 6th Form students via their sponsor sheets.
