Two friends from Hayle, Eddy Penrose and Ollie John Downes was chatting online when an idea came up to celebrate Eddy’s birthday - ‘why don’t we shave our heads to raise some money‘.

After many comments of how great this was, they set up a facebook group encouraging other people to shave their heads and try and raise some money too.

Eddy told Pirate FM 'Ollie and I are literally overwhelmed with the results, it has been nonstop since we started'.

At this moment in time there are nearly 3500 members, money raised is over £10,000 and over 500 head shaves.

One participant is Stacey Cherrett who told Pirate FM ‘I noticed there wasn’t hardly any women doing it so I shared to everyone I knew, if the money gets to £6000, I will shave mine. I didn’t really have time to say goodbye to my hair because as soon as I woke up the target had already been met
