FRIENDS of a man who was killed last month have had their heads shaved in his memory.
Stevie Cameron, 22, died from severe head injuries following a disturbance at Tintern Avenue in Milnsbridge on February 1.
Three of his friends have had the letter ‘S’ and a heart shaved into the side of their heads.
Joanne Neary, 20, from Marsh, Leigh-Anne Farrar, 21, of Golcar and Charlotte Gilchrist, 21, from Quarmby had the work done at Cam’s Cuts on Half Moon Street.
Joanne said: “I would like to thank Cam’s Cuts for helping out and shaving our heads for free to hep us get our point across that Stevie was a much-loved character and will be truly missed by all who knew him. We chose to go to Cam’s because it was Stevie’s hairdressers.”
Stevie grew up in Marsh and went to Reinwood Junior School and Salendine Nook High School.
He was killed in the early hours of February 1 after trouble erupted outside a home on Tintern Avenue in Milnsbridge where a birthday party was taking place. Two men aged 18 and 28 were also injured during the incident.
Twelve men were arrested over the incident and released on bail pending forensic enquiries. A Police spokesman said yesterday (Thursday) that enquiries were ongoing.
Stevie’s death was a second tragedy for his family, as his half brother Paul McKenzie died in a car crash.
Joanne is also auctioning sporting memorabilia to raise money for a memorial to Stevie.
She has collected shirts from Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres, Gordon Banks, Pele, Bryan Robson and Norman Whiteside. There are also boots from Torres and Ryan Giggs.
Joanne is also auctioning boxing memorabilia including a programme, ticket and glove from Joe Calzaghe’s last fight and a photo of Ricky Hatton. All the items are signed and framed and come with a certificate of authentication.
Joanne said: “The auction is going well so far. The Calzaghe items have been the most popular.”
The auction finishes tomorrow. Anyone who wishes to view the lots can visit www.findmypics.co.uk. People who want to bid can call Joanne on 07894 525 562.
Stevie’s funeral takes place at Christ Church in Linthwaite next Monday (March 23) at 11am.
