After ten years of sporting long flowing locks a Gorleston support worker has made the brave decision to have the lot lopped off for charity.

Harry Barron has always had long hair but has been going without even a trim for the last two years ahead of the big chop on June 29.

The 54-year-old, a support worker with Indepence Matters, is known for his trademark tresses drawing comparisons with celebrity rockers.

But he says he has the best of inspirations raising money to create a garden patio area for elderly clients at Rosewood Community Hub in Suffolk Road, where he works, and donating the hair to The Little Princess Trust to be made in to wigs for children with cancer.

'We want our older people to be able to sit outside and enjoy the garden when the weather is nice.

'A a nice flat patio area would make it safer and easier for them to access the garden so they can benefit from the fresh air and enjoy the flowers, plants, birds and squirrels,' he said, adding: 'Each paving slab costs less than a fiver and your donation will go towards making this a reality.'

Mr Barron has already raised £200 through sponsorship.
