Cranleigh's intrepid moustache growers raised $800 for Movember.
Led by the offices Young Guns of Devon Nel (leader), Waruna Karunaratne, Patrick Mahoney, Matthew Willacy and the only oldie, director Mike Stanton, Cranleig's finest Mo Bros grew various shades and states of moustaches for the entire month.
Some were better than others and the only Mo Sista in the office, the lovely Gabby Newton, had her own pink moustache. It would be fair to point out it was not grown on her upper lip.
Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men's faces in New Zealand and around the world to raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and depression.
On the first day of November guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face and then attempt to grow whiskers for the rest of the month. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men's health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valour by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Parts held around the world by Movember, for Movember.
Our own Cranleigh Mo Bros put in a great effort and the company is proud to be part of a growing worldwide community cause.
