Drummer ready to shed the dreads for charity

DRUMMER for local roots-reggae group Ebb N Flo, Micky Seccombe, is set to lop off his dreadlocks at today's Hoey Moey show to raise money for SurfAid.

Micky is cutting off his dreadlocks of 14-years to raise money for the organisation, which improves the health and self-reliance of communities in remote locations connected through surfing.

"I've had my dreads for 14 years and to be honest I can't wait to wear a hat again," he said.

"It gets really hot under these locks, especially in summer, when I'm at work and surfing."

Micky said he was inspired to help the organisation after travelling to the Indonesian Mentawai Islands last year.

"I was going through some hard times in my life and it was perfect timing to clear my head and surf with my mates in a place you call paradise.

"I met some amazing people and was overwhelmed by the local people and how they live.

"That trip changed my life for the better and I want to give back to a place that makes me so happy."

Micky's dreadlocks will come off on stage at Ebb N Flo's Easter Sunday show at the Hoey Moey.

Donations can be made at the gig, or online at give. everydayhero.com/au/micky.
