Taz puts colour in his chin in bid to raise charity cash
Manager dyeing his beard to help Cancer Research
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.
He is calling the challenge Beard Cancer Sooner.
People who donate get to vote for what colour Mr Szulc should dye his beard the following month.
So far Mr Szulc has sported a purple and blue beard and this month he has a green beard.
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.”
Mr Szulc has so far raised more than £285 from his Beard Cancer Sooner campaign.
He is hoping to raise a minimum of £1,000.
This is not the first time he has fundraised for the charity. In in the past two years he has raised more than £1,000 during for the Stand Up To Cancer campaign.
Assistant manager at the Chesham Cancer Research UK shop Jennifer Barros said: “Taz is incredibly committed to raising money for the charity. Because what’s he’s doing this time is so unique – people stop to look and ask him ‘why is your beard green?’
“People like adults doing daft things for charity.
“They have been responding very well and have been very supportive.”
