Brave James makes the cut in Carlisle court charity fund-razor

HAIR TODAY…Carlisle Combined Court administration officer James Rees-Dobbs received his charity crew cut from Katy Bradley, co-owner of the city’s GroomFellas barbers.

[A] PLUCKY office worker was the mane event as an annual coffee morning became a real fund-razor.

Judges and lawyers joined Carlisle Combined Court staff to dig deep and pledge cash for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Cakes, brownies and other gorgeous goodies were specially made for a coffee morning at the city’s Earl Street complex which took on the theme of “brave the shave”.

And good sport James Rees-Dobbs volunteered to have his locks lopped off in an effort to persuade others to put extra pennies into the charity pot.

Ex-military man James, now a court administration officer, received applause from supportive colleagues as he was given a quick-fire crew cut by Katy Bradley.

Katy is co-owner of GroomFellas barbers, in Carlisle’s Lonsdale Street.

“It was refreshing…and worthwhile,” reflected James. “There is no reason why anyone else shouldn’t do the same.”

In total, £264.70 was collected during the day-long event.

And Carlisle’s resident judge, His Honour Peter Davies, stated: “Macmillan are fantastic because they help so many people.

“We are all feeling fat from a day of consuming large amounts of cake but in a nutshell the day was a lot of fun, and our James was a very good sport in sacrificing his full head of hair.”
