M&S has chosen Willow as its charity of the year, and as part of the scheme staff member Wayne Hanson got his head shaved outside The Howard Centre.

Other employees also donned funky hairstyles while drumming up support from passersby earlier this week.

“We’re loving their enthusiasm and are so grateful for their support,” said Katie Fisher, Willow’s community fundraiser.

“Willow relies entirely on donations to provide Special Days, so it’s the generosity of local businesses like M&S that mean we can continue to help so many seriously ill young adults.”

Willow provides Special Days for seriously ill people aged 16 to 40.

It was co-founded by former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson and his wife Megs, as a lasting memory to their daughter Anna, who died of cancer aged 31.
