Midfielders Jones and Kennedy, both of whom remain hugely popular at Rochdale after their time at Spotland Stadium, have agreed to each grow a beard to raise money for a very worthy cause.
To help Rochdale assistant manager Chris Beech's son, Brandon, who unfortunately has Cystic Fibrosis, the Lancashire club are encouraging their current and former players and staff, plus Rochdale fans and football supporters from across the country to down their shavers this November.
The fundraising project has been dubbed 'Brandon's Beard'.
The Beech family are hoping, if possible, to try and collect enough money from this fundraising idea to help pay for a special bed for Brandon.
Brandon was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of just three. He has physio twice a day to help remove the mucus that builds up in his lungs.
He also uses a nebuliser five times a day and takes around 40 tablets.
