Award-winning Cardiff publican Chris Rowlands of the Goat Major is growing a beard for charity and will be dying it blonde in March as he dresses as a Viking for a month. All for a Motor Neurone disease charity and to support the beard liberation front, sponsorship forms will be available behind the bar from next week during the week-long beer festival run by the pub.The beard has been growing since July so we all look forward to a long and happy growth for Chris!
According to Chris, "What started as a drunken lark has now resulted in a long term project that I'm committed to, who knows I may dye it grey for Christmas!"
If enough money is raised next year, the beard may come off, though Keith Flett of the Beard Liberation Front may have something to say about that idea!
Was playing with the headline "No Goatee for Chris" but thought it would be too obscure for my readership!
