It’s goodbye prickly faces and hello shaving foam as Movember supporters across the county wave goodbye to their fuzz.
Hairy-faced fundraisers and moustachio’d philanthropists have spent the last four weeks cultivating all manner of unusual face manes, from the barely-there tache to the full-on handlebar.
They came, they grew, they conquered – and raised cash for men’s health charities in the process.
Some 18 workers at Slimming World HQ in Somercotes suspended shaving for the month, to raise over £750 for the Movember campaign.
“Movember really helps to put men’s health in the spotlight” said Eddy Hartshorn, Slimming World Head Office IT Support Team Partner, who organised the fund raiser.
“There are hundreds of thousands of men who think that slimming groups are only for women, but there’s a huge amount of support for men in our groups and with a hunger-busting eating plan to go along with the weekly support, it’s great that we’re seeing more and more men join. This is the third year I’ve taken part and we’re all ready to dust off our razors again, but we’re really proud of the funds and awareness we’ve raised. I’m sure next year will be as ‘mo-mentous’ a Movember as this one has been!”
