Two members of staff at Blue Banana in the Frenchgate Centre are going a whole month without shaving.
Manager Martyn White, 30, and assistant manager Liam Rimmington, 24, are taking part in the charity event Movember to raise awareness of men’s cancer.
The event encourages men to grow fantastic taches and bristling beards to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer Research.
And Liam said they were not even going to trim, despite being about to start interviewing Christmas staff.
“The first week’s the worst – it just starts getting really itchy,” Liam said.
He is no stranger to having a beard, but this is his first charity attempt and, so far, he says he is firmly beating his manager’s effort.
“It just goes a bit crazy,” he said. “I look like a tramp.”
