Workers from FWD-IP trimmed up their beards in preparation at Mr Barbers in Ely this morning (November 1).

“We really wanted to get involved with the initiative because it is one of the largest mental health causes and raises awareness for cancer charities too,” said FWD-IP managing director Stuart Grainger.

“It’s great because it gets people talking and straight away our nine engineers wanted to get involved.

“They have reached out to their family and friends to sponsor them and I’m sure some of our business contacts will want to help too.
