Curly-locked Richard Keeley, a broker in Miller Insurance Group's property and liability unit, is willing to go “Kojak” in a bid to raise £1,500 for charity.

He has already received pledges to-talling £800 and needs to close the gap before his head is completely shaved at his local pub in St Albans on June 2.

The money Richard raises will go to the Starlight Children's Foundation which provides special treats for severely ill children.
