TODAY I HAD LUNCH WITH JIMMY NIGGLES ESQ., ABSOLUTE LEGEND AND THE FOUNDER OF {THE LIFE-SAVING} BEARD SEASON


Seven years ago Jimmy lost his mate Wes Bonny to melanoma – he was only 26. At Wes’s wake, Jimmy and his friends came up with a way to encourage people to get skin checks, by growing their beards for winter and using them as ‘life saving conversation starters’. Now with his huge following on social media, Beard Season is helping save lives through promoting skin checks and documenting the stories of people who’ve found a suss looking spot because of meeting one of their ambassadors with the #BeardSeasonVictories hashtag.

Version 2

I organised lunch with Jimmy at one of my fave spots, Fratelli Paradiso in Potts Point and over Stinging Nettle Gnocchi and a few glasses of red wine, we chatted about Wes, how Beard Season started and what Jimmy has planned for the future {and his beard!}…

Stay tuned for the entire interview which I’ll post very soon – until then, follow @BeardSeason or visit beardseason.com
