GEARED FOR NO BEARD: David Thurley is doing his bit by shaving his beard for the World's Greatest Shave.

FOR Nanango's David Thurley, it will be just some beard that he used to know.

In his own act of sacrifice, Mr Thurley has pledged to shave his beard as part of the World's Greatest Shave For A Cure.

He is one of more than 100 people who have pledged to help raise money by shaving or dying their hair, or facial hair, to raise critical funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.

The Shave For A Cure Team Believe, based out of Shortiez CFC in Nanango, in just a few weeks has united the community to help raise money for the cause.

The monumental shave will take place between March 14 and 17 and will see the Nanango man without a beard for the first time in more than 13 years.

"My kids have never seen me without a beard," Mr Thurley said.

"I am going to miss it, but it is good to put out the challenge for people to raise money.

"It is a bit different for people to get behind."

Mr Thurley's beard has been on a long journey throughout his life, it was even there on his wedding day.

"Those were the days where it had less grey hairs in it," he joked.

As to what Mr Thurley's wife thinks about the change in facial hairstyle.

"She is still having a bit of a laugh about it," Mr Thurley said.

Mr Thurley is hoping to raise $1000 for Leukaemia Foundation.

"Even if we don't meet it I'll still shave, but it would be great to see people dig deep, get behind it for a clean shaven me."

If you would like to see David Thurley clean shaven and donating money towards the foundation in the process, phone him 0400664003.
