Through the tragedy of losing a family friend to suicide I'm motivated to raise mental health awareness and funds for the Taranaki Retreat.
I'm Sam, as you can see I have grown a magnificent looking beard and have been dubbed "THE URBAN VIKING" .
My beard draws many comments and is always a talking point throughout my travels. My 4.5 years of no shaving comes to an end with "THE BIG SHAVE"
This event has clearly come about due to the tragic loss of a very good friend to suicide. Through this tragedy i have a personal motivation to contribute to an extremely worthwhile cause and wish to support Jamie Allen and his team that do incredulous work at the Taranaki Retreat !!
"THE BIG SHAVE" will be held at:
Sporty's Cafe and Bar on Friday 20th of April.
The event will start at 5.30 pm
Raffles and snacks provided.
We will also have an incentive at "THE BIG SHAVE EVENT" the biggest donation can choose to have the first cut of my beard.
Look forward to seeing you there to support this great cause !!
In respect for a good family friend who was tragecilly taken from us by mental health illness.
