Your school is chal­lenged to recruit a team of big-heart­ed stu­dents and staff and reg­is­ter for World’s Great­est Shave!

Dob in your teacher, take over assem­bly, or even ral­ly the troops at lunchtime with a moti­va­tion­al speech, Rocky Bal­boa style! All that mat­ters is that you unite a team of action-heroes from your school – all in the name of con­quer­ing blood cancer!

World’s Great­est Shave’s offi­cial dates are 16 – 20 March 2021, but if anoth­er term suits your school cal­en­dar bet­ter, you can shave any day of the year!

Why get involved?

World’s Great­est Shave is a pow­er­ful way to uni­fy your school com­mu­ni­ty around an impor­tant cause and is a fun way to edu­cate stu­dents about:


Walk­ing around with shaved or coloured hair helps stu­dents learn what life might be like for some­one who has gone through can­cer treat­ment and is deal­ing with phys­i­cal changes. It helps them bet­ter under­stand the dif­fer­ence between empa­thy and sympathy.


Stu­dents who take part often feel more con­nect­ed to the wider com­mu­ni­ty, acknowl­edg­ing the dif­fer­ences between peo­ple and putting oth­ers first. They learn the val­ue of self­less­ness and the beau­ti­ful feel­ing of help­ing those in need.


Stu­dents will feel a huge sense of achieve­ment and suc­cess in com­mit­ting to the chal­lenge, with many describ­ing their expe­ri­ence as empowering.

Has your school braved the shave?
