A family took to the barber’s chair together for the cause.

Brothers Jamie, 24, Joe, 18, and Harry Shayler, 15, along with their father, Steve, all from Southwell, took part.

Their hair was shaved at The Barbers Chair, Southwell, on Sunday.

Jamie Shayler said they wanted to do something memorable before Christmas for a worthy cause.

“A lot of friends have been very generous with the donations. We have also done a collection at the Admiral Rodney, which has gone well,” he said.

“We wanted to do it for all the people we know who have been affected. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer and we are thankful for people’s generosity.”

He said the family were hoping to raise at least £1,000 for the cancer support charity.

Thirteen members of Southwell Rugby Club’s under-16 squad had their heads shaved at The Barber Shop, Southwell.

They hope to raise more than £2,000.

Coach Cam Pearson said: “They are a close bunch of lads so once the idea started a lot of them wanted to join in.

“A few of them have relatives who have been affected by the illness so it meant a lot to them.

“It’s a great thing they have decided to do. They have been very well supported by their families and their friends.”

They inspired fellow Minster School pupil, William Osbon, 15, of Fiskerton, to complete his own Brave The Shave on the same night.

He was surrounded by family and friends as he had his hair cut at McCarrolls Barbershop, Southwell.

“I was inspired by the Macmillan cause and want people to know that this is not the sudden creation of a gang of skinheads,” he said.

“This was something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and now seemed like the best time to complete it.”
