The Monster has lost his Beard!
Castle Donington Rugby Club Player Daniel Keeling who had cultivated his trade mark beard
for 7 years agreed to a Beard Off complete with a Viking Funeral to raise funds for the Joseph
Cooper Trust. "The Monster Loses His Beard" event was hosted at the Cross Keys Public House
in Castle Donington on Saturday 30th November and attracted an extremely large crowd.
Bids were offered for each segment of the beard with the moustache being the finale and the
item with most bids.
Four other Castle Donington Rugby Club players also got into the spirit of the evening by having
their heads shaved. The event raised £2092 with more funds promised from donations and
