A CHARITY head shave raised hundreds of pounds for Breast Cancer Breakthrough on Friday at The Black Horse in White Roding.

Damien Swallow, 34, and Ben Pipe, 19, raised around £800 through sponsorship when they had their heads shaved and bodies waxed.

Farm worker Damien, who lives in Barnston, said: "Ben, me and a guy called Matt who decided to join in on the night all had our heads shaved, before Mandy Walker, a beautician, helped with the waxing.

"I had my chest and my back waxed, while Ben had his legs and chest waxed. It was very painful."

A raffle was also held with prizes including champagne, chocolates and a cleaning voucher.
