Archant

A March man braved the shave and had all of his hair shaved off to raise money for a charity close to his heart.

Guy Tyers, who works at Ridgeons on Martin Avenue, March, got involved with the firm’s fundraising efforts by opting to lose his red locks, which he had dyed recently in celebration of his football team, Liverpool, reaching the Europa League final.

He decided to lose his locks on Friday June 3 as part of Ridgeon’s efforts to raise money for cancer charity, MacMillan, as he lost his mother to cancer last year.

“I said I’ll do it if it will help them make a bit more money,” Guy said. “I lost my Mum to cancer last year so I wanted to help raise money as they do a lot to help those with cancer.”

“I dyed my hair red for the cup final but that didn’t go to plan so I don’t mind losing it!”

Guy’s two children and wife looked on as supervisor, Bill Coles and operations manager, Dave Dring, got to work lopping off his hair with clippers and completed the shave with a razor and shaving foam.
