Chris Peacock last shaved his beard off in 1979 and pledged to have it shaved off for a one-time event if he could raise enough money.

Chris said: “The generosity of Littleham residents know no bounds when it comes to supporting charity.

“The deed was duly carried out during a cream tea by Morris Poole who wielded the clippers and who claimed that he was more nervous than I was about the whole thing.

“This so far is the third event that the village has put on in aid of the Chemotherapy Appeal, and they have so far raised a whopping £1385.70.”

Chris managed to raise £300 during his beard shave which has contributed towards the appeal’s £1.53 million total so far.
