Coca-Cola Championship side Doncaster Rovers are sporting a new look this month to support NSPCC and Right to Play charities.

Rovers fans who have already purchased this season's replica kit needn't worry though, they haven't opted to change their strip at this stage in the campaign.

The players, management team and staff have all agreed to leave their razors in the bathroom cabinet during March and stage a sponsored beard growing competition to benefit the club's chosen charities.

Rovers are regular supporters of the NSPCC and Right to Play and as Manager Sean O'Driscoll explains, they are enjoying having some fun whilst aiming to raise £6,000 for charity.

He told www.doncasterroversfc.co.uk: "We are thrilled to be doing this for such worthwhile charities; we hope we can raise a large sum of money that will be used to benefit the lives of many children.

"We've got our own sweepstake going for the hairiest member of the team, all proceeds of which will be donated."

Claire Reading, NSPCC Community Fundraising Manager in Doncaster added: "Doncaster Rovers are brilliant supporters of the NSPCC and this hairy challenge is a great way for the players to get involved. I've no doubt they'll turn a few heads on the pitch and in the stands, which will help to remind people that every donation makes a difference."

Please visit uk.virginmoneygiving.com/DRFC to make a donation. All monies raised will be split evenly, between the two charities.
