The organiser of the East Anglian Beer and Cider Festival is to have his head shaved in Bury St Edmunds tomorrow to support his wife who is undergoing breast cancer treatment.

Martin Bate, who married his wife, Angela, in August 2014, will have his head shaved at Kings Road Barbers, at 2pm, to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Angela has had two operations since the start of her treatment on June 23, and started the first of her six sessions of chemotherapy on October 1.

He said: "Macmillan have been very supportive as we go through these difficult times and the treatment that Angela is receiving at West Suffolk Hospital is first class.

"The treatment will take several months and we are hoping for good news in the New Year when the treatment cycles are completed. Our friends and family have been very supportive too."
