A barber went above and beyond the call of duty by undertaking a special home visit for one of his regulars.

Calum Rowan, who works at Luke’s Barbershop in Watford, drove to St Luke’s Hospice in Harrow to tend to 72-year-old Malcolm Watson.

Malcolm has been diagnosed with brain and lung cancer, which had spread through his body, meaning he is now unable to visit his hairdressers.

Initially, his daughter, Kelly, asked if Calum would mind visiting her father at home and he duly obliged.

Once he had been moved to St Luke’s, she contacted him again with an extra special request to see if he could travel up to the hospice in Kenton.

The 26-year-old was more than happy to do so, and he made the trip to St Luke’s to give Malcolm a much-needed trim.

“It was nothing, really. I know he would have come to the barbers if he had been able to and I didn’t need any persuading to go and visit him,” Calum said.

“It’s just a nice thing to do I guess but we didn’t give it a second thought. The family got in touch and it was nice to go up there and give Malcolm his haircut.”

Kelly expressed her immense gratitude to Calum, and the rest of the staff at Luke’s, and said it is important for people to know how hard they work.

“This is one of the reasons I love this shop; I have huge respect for Luke and his fantastic team,” she said.

“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts at this sad time, especially to Calum for all he has done for us. You’re amazing.”
