A Tesco worker in Honiton who grew his hair for 12 months and shaved it all off for Cancer Research UK, raised roughly £500 in the process.

Alan Harrison grew his hair especially for the chop, which took place on the Tesco shop floor.

His hair was cut by Paul-John Bastin of Hunters Hairdressing.

The 53-year-old said: “I don’t miss the hair - I’m quite glad not to have it.”

Kim Hutchinson, the store’s community champion, said: “The event was a resounding success and we all had a giggle when Alan went under the clippers. He’s always been bald, so when he told us he was growing his hair we were worried that he wouldn’t be able to. I think it was a relief for him when it was shaved off and big thanks to Hunters Hairdressing for their time and effort.”

Alan has thanked everyone who sponsored and supported him.
