Man to sport orange beard for Children’s Hospice
PUBLISHED: 16:00 28 July 2015
A man has been growing a beard and plans to dye it orange to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West.
Mohammed Ali, aged 45, from Portishead, wants to raise £5,000 for the hospice in Wraxall after seeing the amazing work they do.
Mr Ali, who runs Ali’s Home Clean, has been growing his hair and beard since May and is planning to turn it orange on August 18.
He will then keep it a bright colour for two weeks while he carries out collections for the charity around the town.
On August 30, Mr Ali is holding a fundraising event at the Mizzymead Recreation Centre, Mizzymead Rise, from noon until 4pm where he will be having his beard shaved off. There will also be a raffle for the cause.
Mr Ali said: “I like to support local communities because they provide me with my bread and better.
“This is a way of saying thank you to them.”
