A man from Cleeve shaved off his hair to raise money for a charity in memory of his wife, who died of cancer.

Steve Brett, aged 62, had been with his partner Vickie for 38 years before she died of a brain tumour five years ago, aged 59.

The couple got married 15 weeks before she died.

Now Steve has decided to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and he had his head shaved at Naturelle Hair & Beauty, based in Congresbury.

He said: “We knew right from the outset what was going to happen.

“There were Macmillan nurses there and I chatted with them and they visited me afterwards.

“They do such wonderful work, they are amazing.”
