Peter to lose his locks for cause
PETER WORTHINGTON IN his RAAF days, before he started sporting his locally-famous beard and ponytail.
PETER Worthington has been growing a beard since the day he left the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), 20 years ago.
Now after years of not having a shave, he is ready to go under the clippers for a good cause.
His beard and renowned ponytail will come off for a charity barbecue in aid of the flood victims from the disaster last month.
The event will be held next Wednesday, February 7 at Depot One, Nolan's Transport from midday for a gold coin donation.
To help raise additional money, Peter is giving people the option to place bids to cut of his pony tail with the highest bidder winning.
“We will also raffle some other items and it will be held at the Nolan's administration building at 16 Brooking Drive, Gatton,” Mr Worthington said.
“On January 4, 1971 I signed the dotted line and became a member of the RAAF.
“After 20 years of being an aircraft engine fitter, I was discharged and I no longer had to shave every day and have a haircut every three weeks.”
Mr Worthington said he is doing it for Legacy, who support service people and their families who do a lot of work that goes unrecognised.
Legacy is an Australian voluntary organisation dedicated to the personal care of widows and children of veterans and dependents of serving service personnel killed on hazardous duty or while training for operations.
