A big charity shave/gig happens this August for some very worthy charities as Rat loses his big ol' beard (you know how much he loves that thing, we have all seen the constant stream of memes) and some bad ass bands play too.
Come down and do some giving.
We will hand you over to Rat to explain the details…
The beard is going, and for a good reason.
These two charities are both close to my heart. In recent years I've lost far too many friends to suicide caused by combat related mental health issues, such as PTSD.
The loss of friends in this way is a difficult thing to deal with, for friends and family.
Combat Stress UK do a great job of helping veterans.
In 2016 I was diagnosed with a malignant tumour on my spine.
In the months that followed I had chemotherapy treatments, which were a massive drain both physically and mentally.
The staff at Macmillan were amazing, and got me through a very difficult time.
On Saturday 12th August there's gonna be a night of live music (bands TBC) at The Parish.
All who attend will be entered into a raffle to win a selection of goodies donated by local businesses.
And, at the end of the night, my beard is shaved off.
I've not been clean shaven in over 5 years, so it's a big thing for me.'
Finally, there's a Go Fund Me page set up for those who can't attend but would like to contribute.
