A TEENAGER from Denbigh is cutting his lockdown hair in memory of his late step dad who lost his fight with cancer.

Saul Greenslade-Wadeley, 19, has grown his hair since the start of the first national lockdown in March 2020.

But the Media and Film Studies student will have it all shaved off for Cancer Research UK and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society UK - two charities very close to his heart.

In January, Saul's step dad, Nick Turner, died following a four month long battle with lung cancer - aged 61.

He had also lived with MS for 29 years.

Paying tribute to him, Saul said: "Despite his illness and all the pain he suffered - he never lost any of his great sense of humour and always showed his love to all of us.

"He just had a habit of making people laugh - he was a great man and is very sadly missed."

As Nick used to poke fun at Saul's long hair, he had planned for Nick to cut it off - but sadly he passed away before he got the chance to do so.

"I want to do this as he always joked about my long hair - I am doing this in his memory", Saul added.

Saul is looking to raise £1,000 each for Cancer Research UK and MS Society.
