Grow a beard this December to stop people dying of bowel cancer in Wales



Bowel Cancer UK is encouraging men across Wales to get sponsored to grow a beard this December.

Taking part in Decembeard is really simple. All you need to do is shave on 30 November and let your facial fuzz grow throughout the month. Already bearded? No problem. Dye, ditch or decorate your beard and join the campaign.

More than 2,200 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in Wales each year, making it the country’s fourth most common cancer. It’s also the countries second biggest cancer killer, but it shouldn’t as it’s treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early.

Michael Locke, Wales Fundraising Manager at Bowel Cancer UK, said: “Whether you already have a beard or are growing one for the first time, Decembeard is a great way to do something amazing this festive season and support those living with bowel cancer. The money you raise will help fund vital services and lifesaving research.

“It couldn’t be easier to take part. Sign up, ditch your razor and get sponsored to grow a beard or get creative with the beard you already have. Join the campaign and help us stop people dying from bowel cancer.”
