Shoppers at Doncaster’s Frenchgate centre have helped to raise £500 for Prostate Cancer UK - just by having a shave.

They were offered a traditional hot towel wet shave in exchange for a donation to the charity by James Herrington, pictured, from The Gentleman’s Retreat, in Bawtry.

More than 140 men queued up to sit in the barber’s chair.
