A customer at the Cavalier Inn on Carlisle Road is shaving off his hair, beard and seven-inch moustache to raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.
The pub will host the hair cut at half-time in the World Cup final, due to take place on Sunday, July 13, and is urging all football fans to head along and support the cause.
The Bobby Moore Fund was set up in 1993 in memory of the legendary football and raises funds and awareness for bowel cancer – the disease Bobby Moore sadly died from aged just 51.
So far, the charity has raised more than £21 million that has been used to help look into cures for the life-threatening disease.
The charity is one close to the heart of Keith Carruthers, who runs the Cavalier Inn and who played professional football alongside Bobby in 1974.
To continue the support of the charity, Keith has put four collection tins on the bar in the pub to collect people’s loose change for the next few weeks.
The Cavalier Inn will be showing every match during the World Cup tournament, despite the late kick-off time of a third of the games.
