A DAVENTRY man encountered a close shave yesterday (Wednesday) but it was all in a good cause.
While many men have been growing a moustache for Movemeber – the fundraising month for men’s cancer – Wayne Cox decided to have his moustache shaved off, along with all his hair.
Mr Cox is a regular at the Reach For Health gym in High March, Daventry, where early yesterday morning he put himself at the mercy of a razor.
Although sponsorship forms have only been out since Monday, the total has already reached £410 and is expected to grow even more.
The gym specialises in helping people recover from illness or operations.
Mr Cox joined the gym after being referred by his GP due to his diagnosis as having chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder.
