IAN Hopcraft looks a fright as he prepares to have his locks shorn off for charity.
Mr Hopcraft is raising money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in honour of his shaver-wielding friend Aaran Arslan.
Nine-year-old Aaran is currently being treated at the Royal Marsden, in Sutton, for a brain tumour.
His mother, Kellie Arslan, is also planning fundraising events including running the Cancer Research UK Race for Life this summer and a sponsored charity jump.
Mrs Arslan, of New Addington, said: "I really admire him for doing it. People have starting donating now, so it is great."
