A Gittisham man who had a charitable hair cut has raised £500 for the Devon Air Ambulance.

Richard Maddox was discovered by his daughter hanging from a 12-foot ladder he was on to change the bulbs at his Gittisham home.

He was flown to hospital by the Devon Air Ambulance - a charity he supports by working in its Honiton-based charity shop.

As previously reported by the Herald, Richard faced a long road to recovery - undergoing several months of arduous rehabilitation, helped by his family and a rehabilitation service team based in Honiton.

Beth Hibbert from Newton Poppleford-based Pride Hair Studio cut Richards hair off at the end of last month.

So far he has raised £500 for the charity and is still accepting online donations through his fundraising web page: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/richard-maddox1
