Marsden man Dave Whitehead will be hoping that the warm weather is here to stay as he gets ready to undergo a close shave for charity.
The Marsden Liberal Club concert secretary could become unrecognisable when he says goodbye to his long locks on April 26 as part of a bumper fundraising bid at the venue for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
He hopes to raise over £400 by letting a local barber give his hair and beard the chop for the charity, which came to the rescue of one of the club’s regular musicians, Chris Parr, last year after he was caught up in a head-on collision by the Motorman’s Cafe in Manchester Road.
Dave, 54, hopes the event will beat his previous fundraiser for the Kirkwood Hospice two years ago.
He said: “It’s going to look very different to say the least, but it’s for a really important cause.
“Without the air ambulance a lot of people’s lives would have been at risk and its volunteers do an incredible job and I just want to do my bit to help them.”
Local bands will also be performing on the night and the head and beard shave will start at 9.30pm.
