The Big Charity Shave Off!

On Saturday 15th October Orchid the mens Cancer charity are holding a Guinness World Shaving Record event in conjunction with The Gentry Grooming Co and Wilkinsons at Manchester Arndale to raise money to support vital research and work into fighting male cancer.

As someone who has suffered a loss of a loved one from Cancer i always try to support brilliant charities like this.

Over 37,000 men are diagnosed with male cancer every year and these numbers are increasing and relentlessly approaching breast cancer figures, yet the awareness is still much lower with men often avoiding health issues, warning signs and symptoms and failing to carry-out regular self checks. From sons to grandfathers all men of any age face the risk of prostate, penile or testicular cancer. Orchid plays a leading role in the fight against male cancer through research and awareness and by supporting men and their families.

If any of you are anywhere nearby then please pop down to support this event and many of you will have partners, brothers, friends who might be interested in participating so spread the word.
They are looking for 251 to 1,000 men to participate in ‘Guinness World Record Shave Off Charity Fundraising Event’ to beat the current world record for ‘Most Faces Shaved In 8 Hours’ and to raise maximum funds and awareness for Orchid. Participants will have to shave themselves and must have at least 24 hours of stubble. 

The Gentry Grooming Co’s Shave Experts will be undertaking live tutorials to demonstrate how to achieve a professional shave. Participants will be provided with a razor courtesy of Wilkinson and The 3D Shave Cream courtesy of The Gentry Grooming Co. Orchid will provide valuable advice on how to undertake a men’s health M.O.T check.
