Grantham man doubles fund-raising target by shaving his hair
A 75-year-old man who got his hair shaved for charity has nearly doubled his original fund-raising target.
John Lyon, of Harrowby, ‘braved the shave’ at Just Gents on Welby Street, last week to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
He has already raised £191 of his original £100 target.
The challenge is particularly poignant as John has just started treatment for prostate cancer.
He said: “I've done quite a few fund-raising events in the past and I thought it had been awhile so wanted to do another. I just want to help others.”
