Brooke House support worker has sponsored head shave to mark the Queen's birthday

upport worker Samuel Hales confessed he was slightly nervous about trusting in colleagues and residents at Brooke House care home for his future hair style.
 
But replacing his wavy curls for a much more streamlined look was all in a good cause – for the 22-year-old, who has worked at Brooke House, in Brooke for six months, raised £160 through sponsorship for the charity Friends of the Elderly.
 
Samuel, who lives at Foulsham, near Fakenham, said: “The Queen is a patron of the charity, which supports older people in countless ways, and we wanted to do something to commemorate her 95th birthday.
 
“I was considering either having a haircut or growing a man bun!  The residents were well up for the idea.  I was slightly worried the hair clippers’ guard might come off and I might end up completely bald.”
 
Staff and residents took turns with the clippers and activities coordinator Liz Borrett made sure the finished cut looked respectably tidy.
 
Samuel was sponsored by staff, family and friends.
