On Saturday 15th October, Orchid (a men’s cancer charity) in conjunction with The Gentry Grooming Company and Wilkinson (the razor people!) will be hosting The Big Shave Off, a Guiness World Record Charity Fundraising Event in order to raise money to support the research and awareness work the charity do into fighting male cancer.
Over 37,000 men are diagnosed with a male cancer every year (testicular, prostate and penile cancer). The diagnosis rates are extremely low because men, let’s face it, tend to put off checking themselves and reporting symptoms.
Want to be involved? Let’s br-br-break it down….
Date: 15 October 2011
Time: 10am – 6pm
Place: Manchester Arndale in Hallé Square
Rules: Participants must be 19+, need at least 24 hours worth of stubble and will have to shave themselves.
Price: Please donate between £3 – £5. The money is for Orchid.
Goodies: All participants get a razor from Wilkinson, and a 3D Shave Cream from The Gentry Grooming Co. (The set is worth £20). Mr C had a treatment at The Gentry and loved it, read the review here.
There will be some local celebs there too, so you can do a bit of celebrity stalking if that’s your thing.
251 – 1,000 Male participants are required to beat the current world record for ‘Most Faces Shaved In 8 Hours’ so if you are in Manchester, are a man, know a man, or a few men, bring them along! There are some raffles for the ladies to enter and CLEAN SHAVED MEN to collect afterwards.
You can pre-register here or just show up on the day.
