King of the Beards – Will Byfield

After nearly 8 long weeks and several itchy faces the annual Henry Smith Beard Challenge for the Changing Lives Campaign is finally over. Thank you to all those who participated, supported and encouraged – we are delighted to announce that you raised a fantastic £1,671 for this very worthy cause.

The vote was cast to all RGS staff in order to decide who would be crowned “King of the Beards” and in the end one emerged victorious to take the coveted title. Our very own Mr Will Byfield, Head of Hodgson, triumphantly collected more votes than any other and took home a bottle of bubbly and some L’Oreal facial products to aid with the removal of his fine beard (which he has yet to do!)

Thank you to all those who supported this challenge.

Take a look at a gallery of the final beards here.
