HAVE you joined in the #nomakeupselfie craze sweeping across social media? Let us know.

Over the past week, pictures of bare-faced ladies have been appearing on Facebook and Twitter but at first no-one was quite sure why.

What started out as a bit of fun has become associated with raising money and awareness for Cancer Research UK.

Despite the hashtag not being started by the cancer charity, it has jumped on board to promote the trend and thank everyone for their support.

Now, men have been challenged to do the opposite and post pictures of themselves wearing make-up.

A combined £8million has been raised for charity to date.

We want the people of Chard, Ilminster and Crewkerne to be brave and send us your selfies.

Email your pictures to or message them to us on Facebook or Twitter (@chardandilynews)
