PAT Synan is on a hair-raising mission.
The 54-year-old father of three from St Ives has abandoned his usual short back and sides and has spent a year letting his hair do its own thing.
He is being sponsored to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support who helped his brother-in-law, Alan Jones, who died of cancer in February last year.
Alan was 47, leaving a wife (Pat's sister Carmel) and four children.
