Caring teenager Scott Noble is set for a sell-out charity night.
Scott will endure a leg wax and head shave this weekend – and he’s bravely doing it in front of a crowd that could run into the hundreds.
My target was £1,000 and I have beaten that with donations. I am hoping to go well over thatScott Noble
The Hartlepool 16-year-old had originally hoped to raise about £1,000 through the charity evening tomorrow at the Victoria Arms in Northgate on the Headland.
He has already raised that in advance of his big day and he reckons the final total could go hundreds of pounds over his initial estimate.
It’s all being done in memory of his aunt Tracey McPartlin, who lost her battle with cancer in 2012.
Scott said: “My aunt was 45 when she died from cancer and I want to raise money for Macmillan.
“It is going to be a sell out. I have got family coming from all over.
“The amount I am raising has already beaten my fundraising total with donations.”
The highlights on the evening will include Scott having a leg waxing.
“A couple of lads and me are getting our heads shaved,” he said.
Scott’s pals are also planning a beard shave at the event.
There’s plenty more to enjoy at the evening where the activities will get under way between 6pm and 7pm.
The night’s events will also include a dove release, auction, a raffle and a disco.
Tickets are £2 each which includes pie and peas. For tickets, people can either call Scott on 07341 841074, or by paying at the door.
Scott’s mum Joanne Thornton is backing Scott all the way and added: “We are hoping to get as many people as we can there. I am over the moon with him and what he is doing.
“He has planned this for three or four months and put his heart into it.”
To help more people living with cancer, Macmillan relies on public donations.
