Original Story – Posted on the 3rd January 2018

Our very own Howard Griffiths is set to lose his Santa beard this Saturday, and it’s all in a good cause!

Howard, now approaching his mid 70’s, has spent many years raising money for local charities in and around the Rhondda Cynon Taff, including GTFM (Which in itself is a registered charity)

This Saturday, January 6th, the beard that Howard took approximately 365 days to grow will be shaved off for charity, with Howard then starting the cycle all over again, by growing another beard for Christmas 2018.

Howard said

“It gives me a great thrill to raise money for charity in such a unique way… and the kids love it!”

Altogether Howard has raised £240.35 from his beard sponsorship, which will be donated to GTFM. Many thanks to everyone who has helped support Howard over the past 12 months. Long may it continue into 2018 as Howard grows it again!
