Some of our readers might remember, that last week we shared a video of Inspector Ayling from North Bedfordshire Police taking some tough questions from primary school children during an intense Q&A session.
The question and answer session was a light-hearted way of reaching out to local kids in a friendly and informal way.
Some of the questions posed included: ‘Do people steal butterflies’ and ‘can you do the gangnam dance’ – questions you would expect from natrally curious children.
Well, @NorthBedsPolice has put the decision to the public vote in the name of charity! (scroll down for the poll).
The community policing team are going to raise money for ‘Lulu’s appeal’ – an appeal that is hoping to raise £10,000 for life-saving treatment in America for a young girl.

So @NorthBedsPolice is asking:
‘Who would support Inspector AYLING of the north community team shaving his head and beard in support of charity head shave for Lulu’s appeal?
‘We need your help to raise £10,000 by June PCSO 8896’
