A Ramsgate hairdresser is offering free haircuts for people who are struggling with finances this winter.
Marcello Marino, who has owned his West Cliff Road salon for more than 30 years, usually offers cuts for donations to charity during the Addington Street Fair in September.
The 53-year-old, who took his skills onto Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 and has appeared on several reality shows including Come Dine With Me, has previously raised money for charities including Pilgrims Hospices.
However, this year the fair was cancelled due to rising costs and uncertainty about road closures so Marcello has decided to carry out free cuts from his shop this Monday (December 19) from 9am to 5pm.
The dad-of-two said:. “It’s for people who really can’t afford it, so they can look nice for Christmas and be pampered a bit.”
Marcello says people are free to drop in, but ideally make an appointment by calling the salon on 01843 592027.
