A big thank you to everybody who has donated money so far, we are 99% of the way to reaching our target.
With great success comes great sacrifice, and it's been a tough week with man-flu and nose bleeds being amongst the obstacles that the team has had to overcome in the pursuit of facial follicle perfection. Perseverance has been the name of the game. Insults are now turning to compliments with Chris's efforts being described variously as "natural" and "suiting" him. Dave meanwhile becomes ever more attached to his new look, his purchase of a beard trimmer this week suggesting that he is viewing the beard as a long term addition as opposed to a short lived whimsy. Gavin and Stephen are still manfully pursuing moustachioed perfection, with facial grooming becoming a part of their daily routine.
So, with one week to go we'd really appreciate it if you would dig deep and help us reach our target. We're doing this for a great cause. Erskine Hospital has been caring for Scotland's veterans since 1916. Its core role is to provide nursing care for elderly veterans in five specialist homes across Scotland but the charity also offers support, housing and employment opportunities to veterans of all ages. If you could spare a few quid towards our fundraising efforts we would very much appreciate it. It's really easy to donate, just click here.
