This Friday (4 May) well known Scottish alt.blues musician Dave Arcari will be clean-shaven for the first time in over 20 years – all in a good cause, as he’s raising funds for Yorkhill Children’s Foundation.
River City star – and real-life hairdresser – John Comerford will give the bluesman a shave at Alice Rocks Hairdressing in Glasgow’s West End (Gibson Street) at 11am on Friday.
The ‘first cut’, however, will be made by Dundee lawyer Alison Mitchell who’s name was drawn from the list of eligible folks who have made donations via Dave’s justgiving.com web page.
“To make it all a bit more fun I decided that anyone who donated £20 or more and wanted to chop off the long bit of my beard would be entered into a draw to do the dastardly deed,” explains Dave
Dave chose Yorkhill Children’s Foundation as the charity beneficiary to support the fundraising efforts of East Loch Lomond teenager Ben Fraser who’s been receiving treatment at Yorkhill since being diagnosed with leukaemia last summer.
