He said: "My dear mother Joan died of cancer a few years ago and I thought I would try and support Macmillan nurses.

"They do a wonderful job looking after cancer suffers as well as their friends and family and if I can raise some money for a good cause that would be great."

Paul chose his old friend and well-known Bedford hairdresser Giorgio Garofalo to carry out his charitable challenge at the Italian's St Mary’s Street salon in Bedford.

He added: "The guy that did my hairdressing is an 80-year-old Italian bloke Giorgio, very well known, and one of the funniest people you'll meet.

"He recently lost his wife and when I asked him to do my head shave he was over the moon."

Paul's head shave has already raised £360 but needs your help to reach his fundraising target of £1,000.
