The Beating Bowel Cancer charity has organised a major fundraising event to take place next month.
For Decembeard they are calling on everyone to take part by getting sponsored to grow a beard, sport a beard or buy a beard during the month of December.
By taking part in this event people can help raise awareness of bowel cancer, which claims a life every half an hour and is the UK's second biggest cancer killer. The event will help to support the work of Beating Bowel Cancer and get the message out that if diagnosed early, more than 90% of bowel cancer cases can be treated successfully, all the while raising vital funds to support those with bowel cancer through an expert nurse helpline.
