Gwent Young Farmers raise £3,500 through Movember shave for childrens cancer charity

Gwent Young Farmers have raised £3,500 for a children’s cancer charity through the Movember initiative.

 

About 13 members and ex members of the club grew moustaches throughout November – starting off clean shaven on November 1 – before auctioning the chance to shave off their beards for donations towards LATCH Welsh children’s cancer charity.

Three of the men then also volunteered their heads to be shaved through an auction for further donations.

 

LATCH supports children receiving treatment for cancer at the Children’s Hospital for Wales, and is one close to county chairman Trevor Bowen’s heart after he and his family had their help when he was a youngster.

Mr Bowen said: “I must say a massive thank you to everyone who helped raise this fantastic total for such a great cause.

 

“Being a charity so close to my heart, it really does mean a lot.”
