Brenda and Biz Bizzell, who are volunteers at the North Norfolk Railway, went under the clippers on September 28, when the railway also hosted a coffee morning with cakes and competitions.

A “rather chilly” Mrs Bizzell said: “The total for the shave is standing at £1,821, with donations still coming in. The coffee morning raised £851.

“Thanks to all at the railway for their encouragement and support, the many helpers and generous donations, Scissorhands for the shaving, Leigh Caudwell for photography and Holt Minor Miniature Railway for giving their day’s takings towards Brave the Shave.

“Who could have imagined so many people raising so much money to see two old heads shaved?

“The proceeds were paid in via the local Macmillan group, so the funds will be ring-fenced for projects in north Norfolk.”
