Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.I have been tempted in recent weeks to keep growing my beard but after a year's growth and an increasing amount of pressure from my wife I have decided to shave off my now infamous beard in the name of charity. However before I go any where near the clippers we need to raise £10,000!
The money raised will go to the children’s charity Wooden Spoon, which is dedicated to transforming the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the British Isles through the power of rugby. It will also support my former Edinburgh Rugby club mate, John Houston's, fundraising efforts. He needs to raise £50,000 for the 2015 Wooden Spoon Artic Rugby Challenge.
John who retired from professional rugby last year, will set out from Resolute Bay, Canada in the middle of April 2015 to trek up to 100 miles to the Magnetic North Pole in just seven days. Once the teams arrive at their final destination they will play the northernmost rugby match in history, captained by ex rugby internationalists Tim Stimpson and Ollie Phillips.
Thanks for the support. Geoff Cross
