Sponsored shave at The Crown in Stowmarket raises money for EAAA
More than £1,500 raised by a head and beard shave has been donated to charity.
Barry Coleman, landlord of The Crown, in Crown Street, Stowmarket, along with Stephen Snell and Dean Parker, grew their hair for 13 weeks before getting it all cut off in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA), raising £1,516.65.
The haircut and shave was part of an event at the pub, which included a raffle and karaoke in aid of the charity.
There were also representatives from EAAA, who were selling items, which went into the day’s collection.
After the day, Jackie Snell, who helped organise the shaves, said the pub was “packed” for the event.
