On Sunday 19th April 2014 a Family fun day was held at the Plough Inn Diseworth to help raise funds for the Joseph Cooper Trust. A lovely sunny day saw a large turn out and we managed to raise £500. Our thanks goes to Anna Groves who put a lot of time and effort in arranging the day and I know was quite worried that it may have been a flop! But it turned out to be a wonderful day and well done and thank you Anna.
The Monster Lost His Beard - in aid of the Joseph Cooper Trust
Dan Keeling a 39 year old Castle Donington rugby player.
Dan has been growing his beard for the past 7 years and agreed to shave it off to raise funds for the JCT.
His immediate repsonse was 'no way' but after some careful consideration agreed.
The 'operation' took place at the Cross Keys on Saturday 30th November and 4 other members of the rugby team, Rick Bentley, Mark Laxton, Max Shaw and Ben Kibble agreed to have their heads shaved.
Between them they managed to raise a whopping £3500!!!!!!!
Absolutely well done lads from all at the JCT!
