Grow Up for Decembeard


Men! Grow a beard and help raise money for Bowel Cancer UK this December. 

More than 23,000 men are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year, making it the third most common cancer for men in the UK. So dads, uncles, brothers, nephews and granddads - why not pledge your support for Bowel Cancer UK's Decembeard fundraising campaign and help stop more men dying of bowel cancer in the future.

All you need to do is have a clean shave on November 30 and let your facial hair run free throughout the month of December. If you already have a beard could you decorate, dye or dissect your beard in support of the campaign? 

Bowel cancer is the UK's second biggest cancer killer, but shouldn't be as it's very treatable, especially if diagnosed early. Join the Decembeard campaign and support Bowel Cancer UK's vital services and lifesaving research.
