Sir,

I’m calling on dads, brothers, sons, nephews, grandads and uncles to grow a beard this December and raise money for Bowel Cancer UK.

Taking part in Decembeard is simple. Just clean shave on 30 November and let 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.
