Hair Raiser, 1980

Throughout the 1970’s big John McGhee’s hair hung down to his waist, but in early 1980, all that changed!

John, from Blantyre was 23 years old at the time and was upset when the donation tin was stolen from “The County” , a Hamilton Pub he drank in. He kindly decided to raise funds to replace the money. The Blantyre painter offered to do something he hadn’t done for 9 years….go to a barber!

County Pub regulars sponsored him and he raised £60 when his hair was cut in Hamilton Salon, “Men Only”.
