Just Two Weeks Until HIVE 2015 yet we got distracted by the need to raise money for the vital Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service. Kate and I hope you can support this cause, either by donating funds, sharing awareness or supplying a lovely bobble hat for Kate WHEN we do achieve the target!
Every year, the residents of Nunnington hold a mini festival to raise money for the excellent charity Yorkshire Air Ambulance. This year we were reminded just how important their work is when one of our friend's life was saved following a freak accident.
In December I grew a beard, the first in my life, to raise funds for Bowel Cancer with the charity Decembeard. This year I plan to shave my beard if we reach the hard target of £5000.00 by Christmas Day. It can't be before as I have a few obligations involving a red suit and an odd bunch of Reindeer.
Following discussions, there is a raft of options:
£1000.00 raised and off with my moustache
£2000.00 raised and the left sideburn goes too
£3000.00 raised and the right sideburn falls to the floor
£4000.00 raised leaves me with a silly goatee
£5000.00+ and the lot comes off! Plus Kate will also shave her head!
It's such a worthy cause and whilst my effort is paltry in comparison to some fundraisers, I have invested a lot in this beard. Time, product and the occasional insult including being told it was 'Offensive'.
So it's got to go, please donate, share and spread the word to your networks and lets raise some money that does great things for the people of Yorkshire and it's many visitors!
