Almost £800 was raised to help children with cancer at a ‘Dishy Daddy Defuzz’ event in Rothesay on Friday.

The event at the Golfers Bar saw several brave locals volunteer to have their heads shaved to raise money for the cause.

Chris Roberts from the Brianne Roberts Trust, which organised the event, said: “Thank you to everyone that came along to the Golfers Bar on friday night and helped to raise just under £800 for kids with cancer.

“Special thanks must go to Ann Gordon for bravely offering to have her head shaved if the room raised £300.

“luckily for Ann they fell short, but an extra £180 was raised and Ann had the back of her head shaved, bringing the total to £790, with some sponsorship still outstanding

“Thank you to Tommy and all at The Golfers Bar for providing the perfect venue for a great local community fundraiser.

“The support of the community makes such a huge difference to families coping with childhood cancers, and the team at The Brianne Roberts Trust appreciate your generosity.”

More information about the trust and its work will be available at its stall at an Easter market being organised by the Isle of Bute branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland.
