It was a hair-raising experience for a number of people across Mid Argyll when they went for a not-so-quiet drink at Lochgilphead’s Argyll Hotel – and lost their hair in the process as they went head to head with a razor in aid of the Rainbow Valley charity.
The charity aims to fulfil the vision of cancer-victim Johanna MacVicar, who died in 2005, and create a centre of refuge where people affected by cancer can go for advice and support.
