With one act of benevolence from Henry Smith, RGS was founded back in 1675. The one image we have of him is from Wandsworth Parish Church where he can be seen kneeling in alderman’s robes and clutching a skull. He is also sporting a classic beard.
And facial hair is the key to this challenge.
We have launched our very own challenge which involves giving up shaving for this half term and growing your own sponsored ‘Henry Smith Beard’ to support the Changing Lives Campaign.
You can download your sponsorship form from the link below, so whether its a dutch, chin curtain or ducktail beard – get on board and put those razors away!
You can upload your own snaps and keep up to date with everyone’s latest ‘growth’ pictures by visiting our Facebook Page
