Heart rules the head

Heart rules  the head thumbnailTesco manager Dougie Dickson after his head shave in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society pictured with colleagues Victoria Kane, Eleanor Simpson and Jarlaith McMahon.

A CASTLEROCK shop worker has helped to raise almost £2,000 for a charity close to his heart after having a hair cut for the first time in ten years.
Dougie Dickson (28), a general merchandise and clothing manager in Tesco's Ballymoney store, underwent the snip recently in aid of the Alzheimer's Society, a disease which has afflicted his father for five years.
And, if that wasn't enough, Dougie's unwanted locks will be donated to the Little Princess Trust which makes wigs for children undergoing treatment for cancer.
“My hair has been long for a decade now and I always said that if I was going to get it cut I would do so for a charity, but never knew which one to pick," admitted Dougie.
“I decided this year that it was time for a change and decided to do the haircut, finally settling on the Alzheimer's Society as my charity.
“I chose the charity because my father, John, who is 70, has this debilitating disease. He was diagnosed when he was around 65 and this past year he has got quite bad with it.
