Lock-down Beard and Roots Challenge

April 1 - July 31

Raising money for Hospice of the Valleys during this time of crisis.


The incredible staff at Hospice of the Valleys continues to provide what services it can to our community living with a life-limiting illness and their families during these unprecedented times.


The patients and families the Hospice cares for rely overwhelming on your support and even more so during this worldwide crisis.   At this time, your continued support is crucial and as always, very much appreciated.



Not being able to get to the barbers or hairdressers could be your way of supporting

Hospice of the Valleys!


“Can you be a local grower for Hospice of the Valleys?”




Men, let that beard grow during lock-down




  Ladies, don’t reach for that bottle of dye and

wear your roots with pride!


What you need to know………about “letting it grow”


  • To register, please visit our just giving page and donate £10.00


  • You can then either set up your own just giving page (how to set up my own just giving page link here) or share the Hospice just giving page link on your face book page.
  • Ask friends and family to make a donation to the Hospice, update with regular pictures of how your ‘growth’ is looking.
  • Minor trimming/tidying is allowed
  • If you shave or reach for the bottle of hair dye before the lock-down is over, you must donate a further £50 to Hospice of the Valleys.
  • Then when lock-down is over return to your normal clean-shaven, no roots self, knowing that you have done your bit to support your local Hospice.



We have set up a Hospice Lock-down Beard and Roots Challenge Group; you can join this group, post your starting photos and weekly photos thereafter.
