But all that changed on New Year’s Day when family and friends gathered at the Crooked Billet in Worsthorne to witness the removal of his precious locks.

His efforts managed to raise around £1,500 for Pendleside Hospice and his hair was donated to the Little Princess Trust who supply real hair wigs to children and young people with hair loss.

Maria Manta, Nicolo’s aunt and godmother was given the honour of cutting Nicolo’s hair as she was the largest donor.
