A WELL-KNOWN barber from Portishead will be jumping on his bike in May to pedal 1,200 miles for charity.

Mark O’Hare, aged 41, of Mark’s Barber Shop in West Hill, is hoping to cycle from John O’Groats to Landsend in just 12 days.

Mark’s two children, Chloe, aged 15, and Oliver, aged 12, and his wife Jo are planning to join Mark on the last 20-mile stretch to help him reach his target.
