A FUNDRAISING ex-serviceman who dyed his hair for charity has received his final total - raising more than £1,000 for charity.

Ian Self, 55, launched a public vote back in June to decide which two colours he would dye his hair before June 25, Armed Forces Day.

All the money raised will go to charity Help For Heroes.

Ian said: “I’ve received my certificate from Help For Heroes now. I collected money from boxes and wristbands in local pubs for another month or so. My total is £1,830.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to the pubs, businesses and people of Barnsley who have been tremendous with their help, and my partner Miriam.”

The money will go towards helping both serving and veteran servicemen and women get the support they need for recovery.
