Forget flowers, what this Cornishman's doing for Valentine's Day is extraordinary; Adam Such is giving free haircuts to the homeless!

By day, the young barber is an apprentice at Tailored Cuts in Falmouth.

On Wednesday morning, along with boss, Mark Smith, he will be supporting rough sleepers at St Petroc's in Truro.

Adam tells Pirate FM it is about boosting confidence: "It'd be nice for them to have someone to talk to who listens to them, who understands why they've got to where they are now; just help them out and give something back.

"A haircut can change someone's look completely so it'll be nice to see them with a smile on their face and feeling more confident in themselves".

He added: "I just think it will give them a massive confidence boost on how they look and how people see them.

"Valentine's Day is a special day for quite a few people and I'd like to make their Valentine's Day special for them as well".

Adam and Mark will be at St Petroc's in Truro between 9am and 1pm on Valentine's Day, if you want to support them.

Listening to the reasons Adam decided to do this will definitely make you feel the love this 14th February!
