Sir, I’m calling on dads, brothers, sons, nephews, granddads and uncles to grow a beard this December and raise money for Bowel Cancer UK.
Taking part in Decembeard is simple. All you need to do is clean shave on November 30 and let your facial fuzz grow throughout the month. Already bearded? No problem. Dye, ditch or decorate your beard and join the campaign.
Bowel cancer is Scotland’s second biggest cancer killer. However, it shouldn’t be. It’s treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early. Grow a beard this December and raise funds to support vital services and lifesaving research. Sign up at bowelcanceruk.org.uk/decembeard
