Rev Lee Gilbert, who supports patients and staff at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn, had baked a cake for Macmillan last year but decided to go one better by having his head shaved for the charity.

Hairdresser Zara Aldridge, owner of Bobtailz, which is based in the hospital, did the honours on Friday, September 28.

So far the Rev Gilbert has collected £400 as a result of this fund-shaver.

He said: 'As a previous minister of a church I saw the tremendous work that Macmillan does and did for people affected by cancer, both in the community and in the hospital where I work.
