Joe braves the shave for charity

Hair today, gone tomorrow... but Joe Harrison's close shave was all in a good cause!

Joe, duty manager at your District Council's Bakewell Swimming Pool, sacrificed his bushy beard and fine full head of hair to raise £870 for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity.

And although he's feeling the cold more than he did, Joe doesn't regret his 'Brave the Shave' effort, completed with the help of local hairdresser Martin Finney.

"I decided to do it to raise money for a charity that is close to many people’s hearts," said Joe, "and also contribute towards the £2,000 charity fund raising target we've set ourselves here at Bakewell Swimming Pool.

"I knew I would get a lot of support from family, friends and the many customers that visit the pool and I want to say a massive thank you to all who donated and supported me."
