The secretary of the Parent Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) at Corringham Primary School has been sponsored to shave off his big bushy beard.
Ben Stockdale said: “I have a big beard and through sponsorship the schoolchildren have been raising money for me to shave it off to benefit and support the children.”
“They have raised over £400 and one child in particular has raised £100 and more door to door.”
Corringham Pupil School pupil, Tia Walford, seven, is pictured making the first cut.
The money raised will be used to purchase new school equipment.
