November, a time of year where a quick double-take of your colleagues new found (and often unusual) facial hair is a regular occurrence – and it was no different in the PC Henderson office last month.
The Movember Foundation raises funds on a global scale all year round but in November one of its most recognised fund raising methods is put to play – the Movember Movement. For 30 days men are challenged to cut out the shaving and grow their moustache in order to raise funds for the charity.
Six P C Henderson team members took part in the hairy challenge and raised over £340 in their efforts. The team would like to thank everybody who donated towards the worthy cause. If you’d like to show your support, it’s not too late – simply visit the teams Movember page and submit your donation.
What is Movember?
The Movember Foundation, set up in 2003, is tackling some of the biggest issues in mens health including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. In 13 years the foundation has funded more than 1200 men’s health projects around the world and plan to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by the year 2030.
