Royal Navy Reservist, Lieutenant Commander Steve Yates, has worn his cherished beard for over 25 years, but had it removed by members of the HMS Flying Fox, to raise £241 for CLIC Sargent.
The ships company all took part in the beard shaving fundraiser event. The result was a much smoother and younger looking member of the Royal Navy Reserves who is now fine for a shave for another 25 years!
Steve said: "I am raising money for Abby Whitelaw, a very brave nine year old girl, who is fighting leukaemia.”
HMS Flying Fox have now chosen CLIC Sargent as their charity of the year and have a whole host of fundraising activities planned.
