Grow a beard to fight ill­ness

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

Hun­dreds of men up and

down the coun­try will grow a beard this De­cem­ber to raise money for Bowel Can­cer UK, and it’s not too late to sign up and show your sup­port for the cam­paign too.

Tak­ing part in De­cem­beard is re­ally 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 the third most com­mon can­cer in men in the UK and the na­tion’s sec­ond big­gest can­cer killer.

How­ever it shouldn’t be, as it’s treat­able and cur­able, es­pe­cially if di­ag­nosed early.

Sports broad­caster Jim Rosenthal, celebrity chef Brian Turner CBE and Olympian Carl Hester MBE are back­ing the cam­paign.

Olympic gold medal­list for Dres­sage Carl Hester has pledged his sup­port for De­cem­beard.

Save lives this De­cem­ber. Grow a beard and raise funds to sup­port our vi­tal ser­vices and life­sav­ing re­search: bow­el­canceruk.org. uk/de­cem­beard
