It comes after the Mayor of Tameside managed to persuade him to chop off his luscious ginger locks.

All the money raised from the shave-off will help the following charities: Tameside4Good, The  Believe and Achieve Trust, Alzheimer’s Society, Ruffley House, Sophie’s Tiny Steps, Stroke Association and Willow Wood Hospice.
