A group of intrepid postal workers on the Somerset Levels are preparing to 'Brave the Shave' to raise money for a colleague with cancer.
Postal worker Steve Garrett, from Drayton, was diagnosed with blood cancer last year and has been on leave for the last 16 months while he receives treatment.
Now his colleagues at the Royal Mail Delivery Office on the Westover Trading Estate in Langport are shaving their heads to raise money to support their friend and colleague.
Brave the Shave is an annual event in which people shave their head (or sometimes other body parts) to raise money for charity, in this case Macmillan Cancer Support.
So far the Westover team has raised more than £1,000 for their good friend, with more donations coming in every week.
The shave will be carried out at Bow Street Barbers on April 29 at 2.30pm. To make a donation to the group taking part, click here
