First published in News

A MAN has had a haircut after almost a decade – all in the name of charity.

Karl Knight, 30, from Westcliff, has been growing his hair for nine years, but decided to get it cut off to raise cash for cancer charity the Little Princess Trust. He shed his locks at Ellis, in Rochford.

So far, he has raised about £600 for the charity. He works as a dental technician at Dental Craft, in Wickford.

He said: “I was quite surprised with the amount, but I’m delighted.”

I might add that this photo was taken before the hairdresser had finished cutting and styling. The Echo photographer could not wait for this due to another appointment. I think the remarks of a 'bath' and a 'hobbit' very offensive. This was a wonderful thing he did for such a worthy cause. Have either of you ever done so much to be proud of? I doubt it.
