Ramsgate hairdresser Marcello Marino has got his scissors at the ready to help those in need once again.
Marcello, who has run his business in Ramsgate for more than 30 years, is offering free haircuts to those who cannot afford to go to a salon.
The hairdresser’s salon is based in West Cliff Road but is currently boarded up due to work on a collapsed sewer pipe.
The 54-year-old and his family also had to move out of their home, above the salon, because of the works taking place and have not yet been able to return.
Despite this, Marcello says he is determined to carry on with his annual tradition of free haircuts at Christmas and The Falstaff restaurant and hotel in Addington Street, Ramsgate, has stepped in to offer a place to carry out those cuts.
Marcello is a well-known personality in the town and even took his skills onto Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. Before his act of one-minute haircuts he told top judge Simon Cowell he could do with a snip.
He has previously raised money for charities such as Thanet Winter Shelter and Oasis Domestic Abuse Service with haircuts by donation at events including Addington Street Fair.
Marcello will offer the cuts on Tuesday 12 December between 10am and 4pm at The Falstaff, 16-18 Addington Street Ramsgate.
