Flagship Group chief executive David McQuade had grown his facial fuzz for a year before facing the chop in aid of The Helping Harry Trust this week.

The charity supports Harry Charlesworth, who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and breathing difficulties as a result of suffering two strokes before he was born.

Mr McQuade visited Norwich barbers Swagger & Jacks for the cut on Tuesday, January 9.

Mr McQuade said: “I’m delighted to be able to do something for such a worthy cause. Harry is a brave boy indeed. Any money raised will help Harry get the essential equipment, treatment and care he needs to have the best future possible.”
