Grow a beard to fight illness
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.
