The long and short of it
IT was hair today and gone tomorrow for young Scout leader Joe Cooper who lost his hair and beard to raise money for his group.
The 1st Shadoxhurst Scout Group held a fundraising night at the Kings Head in Shadoxhurst on April 25.
The evening included a quiz organised by the pub which saw 12 teams taking part with two rounds centred on a Scouting theme.
To top the evening off, Scout leader and Homewood school pupil Joe, 18, had his beard and hair shaved to raise money for the group.
In total Joe raised more than £200 on the night with another £200 in sponsorship.
The Scouts are planning to use the money to buy portable outdoor cooking stoves for trekking and camping expeditions.
They hope to practise their cooking skills before a Scout cooking competition in June.
