A BIG-HEARTED Bury man has made a series of ‘hair-larious’ photos of him “making memories” with his hair before he lopped off his luscious locks for a good cause.

In the side-splitting gallery Calvin Clayton has captured snaps of him and his hair playing chess, out shopping, watching football, doing homework, taking part in Titanic-like life drawing and even going out on a date.

Before braving the shave, Mr Clayton had been growing his mighty mane for three-and- a-half years with the end game of one day cutting it all off for children’s cancer charity the Little Princess Trust.

The 27-year-old waiter and student said: “There is not actually a reason for me doing this as far as having any experience with knowing anybody close to me that was affected.

“I decided to do it more because of seeing other people do it and that raised my awareness towards the charity, so I decided that I would grow mine to donate it about three-and-a-half years ago and have run with it since.”

After enjoying some final quality time with his locks, last week Mr Taylor made a visit to the Fade Barber’s shop in Radcliffe where he succumbed to the scissors.

His hair along with all money raised from sponsorships will be donated to the Little Princess Trust, who provide real-hair wigs to children with cancer and other conditions who have lost their own through treatment.

So far his appeal has raised more than half of its £1,000 target.

Mr Clayton said: “The appeal came from thinking about how it must feel to be going through cancer as a child, and on top of that losing your hair.

“So gestures like these must really make a difference in some way. Maybe confidence or just feeling happy to not look differently to everybody else.”

The generous gesture is not the first time Mr Clayton has thrown himself into supporting a great cause after he completed the gruelling Three Peaks challenge alongside his sister Sophie in 2016, raising nearly £500 for Sam’s Gift ­- another charity which helps young cancer patients.
