When a work colleague was diagnosed with breast cancer, Liam Baker raised £3,512 for the West Norfolk breast care unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Carol Stephenson noticed a lump last June and soon began treatment here. Without telling her of his money-raising support, Liam, 38, had his hair dyed pink and organised a bucket collection in their workplace, Tesco Express on Wootton Road, King's Lynn.
And after four months of staff and customers chipping in for his eye-catching hair, Liam had it all shaved off as another fundraiser.
Tesco topped up the total amount with a further 20 per cent, which has now been presented to the breast care unit.
Mrs Stehenson, 52, said: 'Liam was fantastic, I'm so proud of him.'

Because she had spotted the lump early, she was able to return to work following treatment. She urged women to regularly check themselves, adding: 'It's so important.'
