A refuse lorry driver at North Devon Council is hoping to raise more than �1,000 for charity, by having his trademark ponytail cut off for Children in Need.
Trevor Mills is going for a full head shave as part of the fund-raiser, with the added incentive that if he reaches his target, another colleague, Jerry Johnson, will also cut off his long locks.
Trevor says: "I've had my ponytail for the last 10 years, so I'm a bit dubious about having it all cut off. However, my friends at work have all been really supportive, and when Jerry said he'd do the same if we raised �1,000 - well, I couldn't refuse. I just need as many friends and colleagues to pledge whatever they can, and the challenge is on!"
The head shave is planned for Thursday, November 19, the day before the Children in Need appeal. However, the council's Works and Recycling team are still in need of a hairdresser who can carry out the head shave. If you can help, please email email@example.com or phone 01271 374776.
