Members of the Pathology department at Blackpool Victoria Hospital had a hair-raising experience for charity.
Andrew Brown, Mark Wrigley, Daniel Brandwood, Jacob Castle, Debbie Castle and Jack Morrow all lost their locks on Friday, April 29, raising an impressive£1,350 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The colleagues were also filmed and photographed during the event.
Jacob, who is the IT manager for the Pathology department, said: “Every year we do something for charity.
“We’ve done Decembeard and Movember but this year we’ve stepped it up a bit.”
Jacob’s mum Debbie, who works as the Phlebotomy Manager for the Trust, said: “It’s a bit of a shock. I said I’d do it after a glass of G&T!”
Daniel Brandwood, a Biomedical Scientist for the Trust, said: “It feels very odd but I feel liberated!
“I won’t need a haircut for at least a year now.”
Paula Hornby, who works in the Specimen Registration office and used to be a hairdresser before joining the Trust, did the honours on the day.
