AS haircuts go, £2,000 is a pretty expensive one – especially when your daughter is the hairdresser.

But Dave Pinnington decided to shave off his hair anyway with all the money raised through donations going to the Thornton-based Jospice.

The Liverpool man was inspired to do it due to his wife, Cath, being cared for at the facility and the family wanted to give something back.

Dave even chose to get the haircut done at the Jospice so Cath could watch, with daughter Clare taking on the responsibility of shaving it off.

Pat Murphy, Director of Fundraising & Communications at Jospice said: “Dave and Cath have been married for 41 years and said they just want to give back something to Jospice for all the care and kindness shown to them. All the family said they are delighted with the quality of life their Mother now has since arriving at Jospice.

”Dave decided he would have a head shave and it would take place at the hospice. Staff and family including Cath were on hand to watch the full head of hair rapidly disappear, and there was a huge applause when Dave revealed he had already raised £2,000 towards hospice care.“
