And this time he had his hair, specially grown for the occasion, turned into a Mohican, sprayed and then completed shaved off on Saturday (June 17).

He may have lost a fine head of hair but the Lions Club, of which he is an enthusiast member, has gained at least £800 from supporters of the charity and well wishers who turned out to see the spectacle at Pendean Care Home in West Lavington.

It took place at a teddy bear’s picnic held by the Lions Club at the home and

attended by youngsters with their parents as well as Lions Club members and Pendean residents.

Funds raised by the club through events such as Geoff’s latest effort go mainly to local projects and 20 per cent goes to worldwide needs.

Locally, the club supports charities including Sussex Air Ambulance, 4sight, Tandem, The Community Bus, Macmillan Cancer Support and Chestnut Tree House and Rogate Youth Club,as well as schools and individuals.
