I’m growing a tache. For charity.
September is the month of TACHEBACK, a sponsored grow-a-moustache event organised by Everyman to raise money to fight male cancers. And for the first time since an ill-advised beard in my early 20s, I’m going hirsute to help.
This, of course, means I need your sponsorship. You can follow my progress (today: stubbly) and pledge me some funds by visiting my Tacheback page: www.tacheback.com/James Wallis
I’m not a great fan of moustaches, to be honest. They itch, and the scraggly ends get in your mouth. But this month marks the first anniversary of my father’s death from cancer, and suffering the indignity of some uncomfortable face-fungus is the least I can do to mark the occasion and do some good at the same time.
And if you’re sufficiently manly, it’s not too late to join in.
