A TOWN centre barbers shop has celebrated its first year of being open by donating a day’s takings and tips to the Comet’s Charity of the Year.

Dean Mayes and Geraldine Travi, owners of The Lounge in Eastcheap, Letchworth GC, donated £300 to Crossroads Care Hertfordshire North.

The shop invited customers to celebrate its anniversary, with North East Hertfordshire MP Oliver Heald among those sitting in the chair to get a trim for charity.

Dean, 27, has more than 12 years experience in hairdressing and barbering.

He said: “What a wonderful day we had. It was the perfect way to celebrate the success of our first year.
