Sleaford, Lincolnshire 1st January 2014
A Sleaford man will not shave his beard for a year to try and raise money for charity.
Mark Back, 31, put away his razor on January 1st and hopes to raise £1,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Mark, who works as a skip lorry driver said he wanted to raise money for this cause to try and do something good for the people that he believed had the hardest job.
Mark said: "We all go home and say what a bad day we have had at work but I just cannot imagine how these awesome people do their job knowing that the outcome is only going to be bad for the families they are helping. They were able to give end of life care to two people I knew. One was my granddad and one a friend of mine."
Photos of Mark's progress will be posted on a Facebook page called 'Beardy One' that he has set up for the challenge. Feel free to follow his progress here. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Beardy-One/242774665883736Read more...
