Bear Beard 365 fundraiser

This is the last time I’m shaving for a whole year!

June 2018 will be the fifth anniversary of my stage 4 bowel cancer diagnosis, this is a pretty big deal as all of you here will know. To celebrate and commemorate it I’m arranging a series of fundraising and disease awareness projects as part of STRIVE FOR FIVE.

This is the first one – BEAR BEARD 365. Please sponsor me to grow my beard for a whole year to raise funds for Beating Bowel Cancer.

I’ll post photo updates every month!

Big hugs
