FIVE workers at the Burnley Asda store had their heads shaved and another lost his beard to raise money for a makeover at a local children's home.

The event was organised by the Colleagues' Circle at the store and local police to provide funds for Easden Clough children's home, Burnley.

One of the Circle members Lia Leone said: "We have already started to buy some items. We are raising money to buy equipment and intend to paint and decorate the rooms in brighter colours to brighten up the place."

Asda workers who lost their locks for the cause were Dominic Wilson, Patrick Mathers, Paul Kay, Graham Catlow and James Buxton.

Their heads were shaved by Nathan of the Jazz Man Groove hair salon in Burnley.

Another worker Shakil Dharas had his beard shaved and raised £120 from sponsorship from family and friends.

Elaine Holdsworth of the Asda Colleague Circle said: "Burnley police asked Asda to help raise funds for this children's home and it was our pleasure to help such a good cause. We are always looking to help the local community in any way we can."

The store's chosen charity this year is a police charity, Victims of Crime.

A tombola and cake stall were also held at the store to help boost the funds for Easden Clough.
