A MAN will have his head shaved to raise money for a cancer charity.

Matthew Hunt, 23, of Melrose Close, Stamford, will face the scissors and razor at the Drum and Monkey pub in Casterton Road at 7pm on Sunday.

He decided to have his head shaved to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer UK after his girlfriend Danielle Altham’s grandmother Jan Smith died in July last year.

The family of Mrs Smith, who lived in Rutland Way, Ryhall, held a fundraising ball at Greetham Valley Hotel Golf and Conference Centre last month.

Matthew, who works for Hanson Cement in Ketton, said: “I thought I would do something myself to raise some awareness of the charity. My hair at the moment is mid-way down my back so it’s quite a big deal.”

Anyone is welcome to come and sponsor Matthew at the event, or you can visit www.justgiving.com/matthew-hunt7 to donate.
