A close shave to raise money for research

First published in

WHILE many men have stopped shaving this month, Simon Kenton has picked up a razor for the first time in a while.

The 40-year-old, who manages a network of community groups in Oxford, had his beard shaved off to raise money for prostate cancer research.

He said: “I have had a beard for 20 years on and off so it’s different, shall we say.

“It was very cold on Friday and I gave myself a right shock when I looked in the mirror on Saturday morning.”

Now he is clean-shaven Mr Kenton, who lives on a narrowboat in Oxford, will be growing a comedy moustache for the rest of the month to raise money for Macmillan.

It is part of a global fundraising campaign dubbed Movember.
