Bristol man to undergo first haircut in 21 years for CLIC Sargent

Graham, 39, a content developer at Lyons Davidson, will be taking part in CLIC Sargent's Big Buzz campaign, which encourages people to become a 'life-shaver' to support children and young people with cancer, many of whom lose their hair during treatment.

Graham said: “It’s been 21 years since I last went to a hairdresser and for the past two years it’s been an ongoing joke with my mum saying 'when are you getting your hair cut?'.

"I’m shaving my head for CLIC Sargent because it’s a charity close to my heart, having known people who have passed away from cancer.

“I feel nervous about the head shave but children and young people being treated for cancer don’t have a choice about losing their hair.

"I know the money is going to a fantastic cause in CLIC Sargent and that is what’s inspiring me to go through with it.

“If I raise my target of £1,500 to help children and young people who are coping with cancer I will go for the full wet shave.”
