An annual pub charity night proved to be a hair-raising experience of a different kind for local electrical contractor Jonathan Reader, who agreed to shed his locks as part ofthe fundraising efforts.
The evening hosted by the Six Ringers pub at Leverington was in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance and Jonathan’s efforts spurred on a similar gesture by friends Nathan Fisher and Max Stott, who also agreed to go under the clippers and lose their hair too.
The three bald amigos raised a whopping £576.97 by their efforts which was added to the massive total of £2,271 raised for the charity on the night.
Six Ringers customers donated a wide range of gifts for auction on the night.
This is the sixth year the pub has held a fundraising evening in aid of the Air Ambulance and the amount raised over the years now tops £8,000.
Pub landlord Eddie Taylor said “I am overwhelmed by the fantastic support we continue to receive every year for this worthy cause - a special thank-you to all the individuals and local businesses who donated the fantastic auction items, without them we wouldn’t have anything to sell and to my customers whose generosity made the evening such a success.”
It costs around £2,000 for the air ambulance to attend an incident.
