A CHARITY beard and perm-off has raised £1,500 for the physical education department at East Wittering Primary School.

The Shore Inn pub in East Wittering was packed as Bill Bacon, had his famously-long beard shaved off.

Keeping him company was his friend, Nick Darley, who said he would have his hair permed if Bill got rid of his beard.

Mark Spreadbury, organiser, said: “People from East Wittering gathered together to donate, and created a fun atmosphere. The Shore Inn would like to thank everyone who was involved in the event and those who donated.”
