Councillor Ronnie Cairns has had a brush with cancer over the last year and had to have treatment at the Western General’s cancer clinic. He was so grateful for the treatment he received that he decided to raise some money for the clinic by having his head shaved. Earlier today at John Hall Hairdressing on Brandon Terrace, he placed himself not only at the mercy of hairdresser John Hall, but also in the less than capable hands of the Deputy Council Leader Councillor Steve “Wolfman” Cardownie.

Councillor Cairns, who represents the Drum Brae and Gyle Ward, said: “I was glad when John took control again. Steve was a bit rough!
“Now I have been given the all clear, I want to raise some money for the cancer clinic at the Western General as they were so good to me. I got five star treatment there. What I would say to all men over 40 is get yourselves checked!”
