After eight long months Michael Howard from Canham’s Road, Great Cornard finally faced the razor on Tuesday, having his first shave and hair cut.
Mr Howard, 80, is raising money for St Nicholas Hospice Care and Macmillan Cancer Nurses in memory of his wife Jean Howard who died from cancer on August 28, 2000.
So far he has raised £155 on his online fundraising page, as well collecting money. He is hoping to raise £1,500 in total for the two charities.
Odette Medley and brother Sonny, from Medleys in Sudbury, did the trimming.
