Resident's Greatest Shave attempt to span three pubs

Rochester resident Thomas Juffs has a pub crawl of sorts planned as part of the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave.

Thomas Juffs is ready for the biggest shave of his life to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.


Rochester resident Thomas Juffs plans to kill three birds with one stone by shaving off his beard, moustache and hair as part of the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave.

His primary reason for the decision came from wanting to donate money to the charity as his niece died from leukaemia a few years ago but he also wants to stop the ‘‘constant nagging’’ from his family who want him to shave.

Mr Juffs said he had not been clean-shaven since 2003 and would not part with his beloved beard easily.

‘‘It’s going to take at least $500 for the beard to come off,’’ he said.

‘‘If I’m going to do it, I’m going to make it worthwhile.’’

He said he was excluding family donations from the $500 he hopes to raise and was hoping for community support.

To help with this, collection tins will be placed in the three Rochester pubs as well as Rochester Newsagency.

Mr Juffs will have his head shaved at the Criterion Hotel on Friday, March 16, at 6pm.

He will move on to the Shamrock at 6.45pm to have his moustache removed, then, if there is enough cash in the tins, he will have his beard shaved at the Hotel Rochy, at 7.15pm.
