WHAT started out as a quest to prove his beard would not be grey ended up as a fantastic fundraising night recently for the Jack and Jill foundation by Dundalk man Andrew McManus.
Andrew was joined on the night by friends Shane Hearty and Niall Lawless who also took part in the beard shave in the Bartender.
Mo from Mr. Snips in Ardee kindly volunteered to shave the beards off and the lads were cheered on by family and friends on the night. There was also a raffle with great prizes.
Andrew said: 'I was thrilled with the amount of money everyone helped raise for such a brilliant charity that helps so many children and their families which came to €860 in total. I would also like to extend a huge thank you to Sheila and all the staff in the Bartender and the sponsors of prizes for the raffle the Bartender, the Park Cafe, Roma Restaurant, Hotel Imperial and Ridleys Bar.
