Big Shave Challenge, Matt before and after shaving

During lockdown we saw the nation tackle one big question - what on earth to do with all that hair! We saw some great results of home hair-dos and the nation came together to have fun and raise money. But we still want you to take the challenge!

We're asking you to brave the shave, try the dye or grow for show and raise vital funds for us when our work is needed more than ever.

How it works


Choose your challenge! Whether you are going to shave your head, beard, legs, or another part of your body. Alternatively you could challenge yourself to dye your hair, or grow your hair instead!

Register your place using the form below - we will then send you an email with everything you need to get started.

Set up your online fundraising page using JustGiving and set your target – we suggest £100, £300 or £500!

Start letting everyone know that you are about to brave the shave in aid of Terrence Higgins Trust.

Post pictures and videos of your Big Shave Challenge, tag in @THTorguk and use the hashtag #BigShaveChallenge.

Why you should brave the shave


Right now our work is needed more than ever. Our support services, such as our helpline THT Direct, have already seen a high increase in demand and we want to make sure nobody’s left without anyone to turn to during this difficult time. With your support we can do this – and have some fun along the way.
