Liam loses long locks in charity hair cut

A LONGHAIRED Lichfeldian has lost his luscious locks to raise more than £1,500 for charity.

Liam Thompstone, 23, had grown his mane for two years before finally parting with his ponytail on Saturday, September 5.

The porter at Richard Winterton Auctioneers braved the barber in aid of the Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides real-hair wigs to children with cancer to restore their confidence and identity.

His hippie hair now destined for use in a wig, Liam’s flowing locks were followed by flowing donations.

An initial target of £500 was rapidly overtaken, with colleagues at The Lichfield Auction Centre digging deep alongside other friends and family on Just Giving.

£179.30 came from colleagues in the firm’s Furniture Department, with a further £220 from other donations dating back to pre-lockdown charity talks.
Auctioneer Richard Winterton pledged £250 to the pot – and this was matched by one of the firm’s logistics partners, Paul Fawkner at Van4Us.

Liam’s tally now sits at an impressive £1,581 and money is still coming in.
