Braddan School pupils bristled with enthusiasm when they took part in the Family Library’s Wear a Beard Day.
Schools, offices and families were encouraged to take part in the Wear a Beard Day at the end of the library’s annual Summer Reading Scheme on the theme of We Be Pirates!
The team at the Family Library was so impressed with the efforts of Year Three pupils at Braddan School, they invited the class down, along with teacher Alison Shimmins, (pictured, left) to receive a prize of a framed beard, and a voucher for £20 Shoprite voucher. The store helped to promote the library’s events.
Erica Humphries, (pictured, back centre) from the Office for Human Resources, also wowed for her efforts and was presented with the Wear a Beard Day Trophy.
With hundreds of people taking part around the Island, Wear a Beard Day raised £570 towards the running costs of the Family Library and Mobile Family Library.
Librarian in charge Mary Cousins said: ‘We were overwhelmed with our response to Wear a Beard Day and would like to thank everyone who took part.
‘The money raised will help us continue to provide the many services we offer.’
