Close shave for mayor to raise charity cash
4:00pm Tuesday 22nd April 2014 in News
A MAYOR has been robbed of his facial fuzz in the name of charity.
Harwich Town Mayor Dave McLeod had his trademark beard removed by staff at Salons 2 on Friday and raised more than £350 for the Mayoress Appeal.
“I have had half a beard for about two and a half years so it is strange to be without it. I have discovered another chin hiding which I did not know about before,” said Mr McLeod.
“Lots of people have donated and I would like to thank them, as well as Salons 2 for their expertise in removing it.
“I will be growing it back starting from tomorrow, though.”
