Dear Ed­i­tor,

I’m calling on men to grow a beard this De­cem­ber and raise money for Bowel Can­cer UK.

I’m thrilled to be sup­port­ing “De­cem­beard”, which is es­pe­cially per­sonal to me.

I’ve had polyps re­moved from my bowel and now have an­nual check-ups, but the re­al­i­sa­tion that it could have de­vel­oped into bowel can­cer re­ally hit me.

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.

Bowel can­cer af­fects one in 14 men in the UK and is the third most com­mon can­cer in men, so it’s a re­ally im­por­tant cause.

Raise funds to sup­port vi­tal ser­vices and re­search: sign up at bow­el­canceruk.org.uk/ de­cem­beard
