My story

<p>Some of you know that I have been getting a bit beardy over the last few months so it&rsquo;s time to tidy myself up.&nbsp; But before I do that it&rsquo;s time to make a mess of my head for charity first.</p> <p>I thought about doing <a href="http://www.dogsbody.org/2009/12/movember-2009/">Movember again</a> but the rules state that you have to shave on the first of the month which seemed a shame to shave it all off just to grow it again.&nbsp; So, I figure I&rsquo;ll charge people money to attack my hair in whatever way they want.&nbsp; I have been <a href="http://www.dogsbody.org/2008/11/head-shave-for-children-in-need/">attacked with a razor before</a> and I usually end up looking very strange although my hair has never been this long to begin with.</p> <p>As I don&rsquo;t work in an office any more I thought I would take over <a href="http://tvsmc.org/">Thames Valley Social Media Cafe</a> at the <a href="http://www.thelounges.co.uk/website/">Alto Lounge</a> on the 18th Nov 2010 and as this is a day before Children In Need it's only right to support Pudsey, a great cause.&nbsp; If you can&rsquo;t make it then I&rsquo;m sure there will be lots of pictures after the event.</p> <p><strong>The rules </strong>(not set in stone)</p> <ul> <li>A donation allows you to attack my beard.</li> <li>The size of the donation is proportional to how long you get with the clippers.</li> <li>If you can&rsquo;t be there then someone else will do it on your behalf.</li> <li>If over &pound;100 is raised then the hair on my head is on offer!</li> <li>No shaving of eyebrows (sorry).</li> <li>I will keep the final look for the rest of the day.</li> <li>I do have a business meeting on Monday though!</li> </ul> <p>Have I missed anything?&nbsp; So <strong>please sponsor me</strong> and lets raise some money for a great cause.</p>
