John Plappert, who works as a yard assistant at Keyline, braved the shave for Macmillan Cancer Support.

As part of his good deed, Mr Plappert said goodbye to a full beard and was covered in shaving foam as the cut got underway.

He said: “Nearly everyone knows someone who has sadly been affected by cancer, so I wanted to do something to support the fantastic work Macmillan Cancer Support does with people in the Colchester community.

“A huge thank you to all my family, friends and Keyline colleagues who donated and helped me to raise a fantastic amount of money – it’s greatly appreciated.”
