Cambrian News photographer - All smiles: a cleanly shaven Vinnie Coles

AN ABERYSTWYTH man has shaved his head, beard and eyebrows in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The Cambrian News reported “Vincent Coles, known as Vinnie, took on the challenge at The Mill pub in Mill Street, Aberystwyth.

Mr Coles, who has suffered with his mental health for 36 years, regularly raises money for charity, and is supported by the local mental health teams who call him an “inspiration”.

Mr Coles raised over £600, with more donations to come, and friend Tim Lewis said Vinnie was “very proud” to have raised so much.

“He is absolutely delighted, it’s a lot of money,” Mr Lewis said. “He thinks it’s important to raise awareness of mental health issues as well as money for worthy causes” here.
