Thirteen pub-goers in the head



The landlord and monk of Pevensey pubs have shaved their heads up to cancer and raised thousands for the cause.

Simon Fall, owner of Royal Oak and Castle, has recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer and receiving therapy, including radio therapy. He and his wife, Karen, married for 27 years and have run the pub for 14 months.

The couple enjoys a growing number of religious monks whose support was presented last month when they came behind shaving heads for Cancer Research UK.

A total of 13 people were shaved with some of the men who shivered from the chin, chest, and armpits while the spectators promised more and more money for the cause of encouragement.

Clients Lindsey and Chris Vine recently held their wedding reception at the pub and back to support for shaving heads.

Lindsey, her 16-year-old daughter, Ruby and husband Chris, were brave enough to attend, and landlord Simon described the atmosphere as "awesome."

Simon said, "It was really incredible. When the ladies participated, the atmosphere was brilliant, people thrown in 10 and 20 years.

"It was fantastic and moving really well."

With raising money to investigate cancer, Ruby's hair is donated to the Little Princess Trust to make wigs for children who lose their hair through cancer treatment.

Shaving was done by Alan, Karen and their son Max from Bad Barnett in Hailsham.

Simon began to lose hair two and a half days before shaving his head, but still had his mustache.

He said, "My mustache was pretty rude, but I asked people how much they would pay me to see how I was shaking.

"In the end, I got it up to 90 pounds."

Simon said he wanted to "give something back" after being diagnosed with cancer itself.

He said, "I got behind Cancer Research. Everyone is hearing about cancer.

"We all know someone who is hit in some way and it's around us every day.

"However, no one directly connected with me had and I was separated from him.

"So when I was diagnosed, it really brought home.

"Having been diagnosed, I met some incredible people at Pevensey Ward and are very eager to hear their stories.

"Some happy, some are not so happy".

Total fundraising surpassed 3,200 pounds, and is still growing, raising the jackpot at 750 pounds a night, and Barclays promised to total up to 1,000 pounds.

The money will go to the Eastbourne branch.
