Commenting on his new hairstyle, Jon said: “Although I’m slightly worried what some of our more traditional clients will think especially when it starts growing out in a couple of weeks, nevertheless it seemed like an apt time to go ahead. Why apt?
“As we’ve all bemoaned the lack of cappuccinos, haircuts, pubs and social contact during lockdown, most of the children that Special Effect help are in long term lockdown of one version of another, either through illness of disability.
“With one of the charity’s main events, the Twin Town Challenge, postponed until 2021, I’m hoping that we can continue to raise money, even if it involves looking somewhat stupid for a few weeks!”
