It was a case of one extreme haircut to another for Wyberton Marsh man Billy Hicks, when he had his head shaved for charity.

Billy decided to take the plunge on Saturday to raise money for Cancer Research UK’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign.

Describing his hair as ‘very thick, like horse hair’ he said: “I’ve had some strange haircuts in my time, but nothing quite as extreme as this before. I wasn’t expecting the cold weather to hit my head as much as it did afterwards - but I’ll get used to it.”

The buzz cut, by Alexia Bell at Reflections Salon in Wyberton, was followed by a wet shave at home – leaving his head completely bald. Billy is raising money in memory of his partner’s gran who died of cancer earlier this year.
