Letter: Grow a beard for charity

editorial image

We’re calling on everyone in Eastwood and Kimberley to support our latest hair-raising charity campaign, Decembeard, which is is all about helping to beat bowel cancer.

Men, women and children in Eastwood and Kimberley can all take part in Beating Bowel Cancer’s Decembeard.

Whether you want to grow a beard, wear a fake one for the day or have a beard bake-off with your friends, there are many ways to get involved.

One in four people are touched by bowel cancer in some way, either directly or through a family member or friend. It’s a very treatable condition if caught early so Decembeard is a fun way people can raise funds and help us to increase awareness of the condition.

To sign up for Decembeard or for more information, visit www.beatingbowelcancer.org/decembeard.Sajedah Patel, Community Fundraiser for the charity Beating Bowel Cancer in the Midlands
