It was a hairy mo-nth around William Buck in November, as an enthusiastic team from across the country participated in Movember. Our Mo Bro’s and Mo Sista’s came together to help positively change the face of men’s health in support of the Movember Foundation, Australia, by raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health issues and physical inactivity.
As the moustaches began to grow and take on a life of their own, frequent mo-gress updates were posted to our Facebook Page. There was fierce rivalry to grow the most impressive moustache, with tough competitions for the ‘best office mo’ and quizzes to match the staff member to the correct celebrity look-alike. As a result, we saw a variety of big, small, colourful and very creative moustaches.
Fundraising activities for the Movember campaign ranged from casual days to bake offs, which spurred on some healthy competition amongst the offices. Collectively we raised a total of $22,872, smashing last year’s donation record by over 3 times. This was a fantastic effort by everyone involved, particularly those who sported the additional facial hair for the month.
We would like to thank our clients, family and friends for supporting us in changing lives and for the generous donations we received towards this great cause. As upper lips twitch in anticipation, we look forward to participating again this year and to continue to help change the face of men’s health.
