Through­out 2016, Taz Szulc, the man­ager of the Can­cer Re­search UK shop, in High Street, Che­sham, is dye­ing his beard a dif­fer­ent colour each month to help raise money for the char­ity.

Peo­ple who do­nate are now vot­ing for next month’s colour, with the op­tions be­ing or­ange or yel­low.

Mr Szulc said: “I have to say I feel quite hum­ble when I’m told what I’m do­ing is amaz­ing. What I’m do­ing is what I hope any­one would do. And with the ex­tra money raised we will one day beat can­cer for­ever.”
