A Bexley man waved goodbye to his hair and beard by shaving it all off to raise £750 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Marc Rogers, 29, who works as a linesman at UK Power Networks in Tunbridge Wells, decided to raise the money after a close friend had a cancer scare.

UK Power Networks will make a donation of £100 as part of a scheme to support the charities which matter to its employee. Colleagues have also thrown their support behind Marc’s fundraising efforts.

Marc said: “I wanted to show my support for my friend at a difficult time. This has raised money for a good cause and I’m so grateful for the support.

“My hair was big and bushy and I had a beard as well. It has all gone and I do feel a bit naked without it. I have got a big woolly hat to keep my head warm.”

The hat will come in useful as Marc works outdoors, keeping the lights on across parts of Kent by looking after the overhead electricity network with UK Power Networks, the regional electricity distributor which delivers power supplies across the South East, London and East Anglia.

A hairdresser carried out the shave at home on Friday (Nov 25).
