The beginning of December heralds the end of ‘Movember’, when men grow moustaches for 30 days to raise awareness of men’s health issues; particularly prostrate and testicular cancer.
Six staff members at Michelmores supported the cause, growing a spectacular array of facial hair for charity. They included (Back row left to right) Phil Willis, Jon Lane, Tom Brearley, (front from left) David Richardson, Ben Howels and Tom Stenner-Evans.
The team, appropriately named ‘Michel-Mos 2013’ once again raised over £1000 for charity, having participated in Movember for the last 4 years. Team organiser, Tom Stenner-Evans, himself a five time ‘Mo Bro’, commented: “Although it’s a bit of fun, it’s great that we manage to raise so much money for such a good cause. Despite Movemberbecominga worldwide phenomenon, hardly anyone in Exeter seems to know about it, so I did get a lot of strange looks in town”.
Tom plans to continue the firm’s Movember fundraising next year, and intends to recruit as many new ‘Mo Bros’ as possible for the 2014 campaign, with a particular emphasis on Partner involvement!
In the meantime, a staff vote is underway amongst the 380 employees in the firm’s 4 offices to determine the’ Michelmores Mo King’ for 2013. Photos, comments, and the opportunity to sponsor the team can all be found on the Michel-Mos 2013 website – http://uk.movember.com/mospace/team
