[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.”
