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.
