One of the brave contenders who faced the clippers was pub manager Adam Crookes. He said: “I am very proud that I was one of the people who shaved their head and beard for this cause. I also had my eyebrows waxed by guests to raise more money for the charity.

"I am humbled by what we managed to do as a community for Weston Park Cancer Centre. In times like this, we have shown once more how important a local community is and how if we work together, we can do anything.”

Adam continued: “This is a cause so very close to our hearts and I want to do everything in my power to support the incredible work of the Weston Park Cancer Centre.”

The charity drive was also in support of a friend of the pub, Maddy Pare, who is undergoing treatment at the hospital.
