Beards of Manchester calendar: all the images

Due to popular demand, here are all the fine beards (and a few ‘taches’) which made it through to be featured in the Beards of Manchester charity calendar. I shot all twelve images within a tight 3 week timeframe in order to hit the deadline for printing of the calendar prior to the launch last month. We went out and shot amongst Manchester’s finest urban nooks and crannies and braved whatever the weather could throw at us.

Can I thank once again everyone involved; Sam and Chris for having the vision to bring BoM to life and who dreamt up such a brilliant idea, Common Bar for the support and exhibition and to all the magnificent hairy faces featured in the calendar and on the website. The fantastic coverage and interest is all down to you.

We are hoping for plenty of sales now Christmas is fast approaching, it’ll make a cracking stocking-filler, a guarenteed smile fest! All the money raised goes to Lifeshare a fantastic local charity helping the homeless in Manchester and Salford.

You can buy the charity calendar in 20+ places all over Manchester, the full list is over on the Beards of Manchester website. Massive thanks to all those stocking it for their support. For those not living close to Manchester, you can buy it online, as Fred Aldous is kindly selling the calendar at the shop and on their website.

More information on the project and the launch can be found in an earlier post here and of course there is loads more info on the Beards of Manchester site.

UPDATE: The calendar completely sold out and raised over £2,000 for the charity Lifeshare.  Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word, sold or bought a calendar, a terrific effort for a great cause.
