The staff from the leading Shropshire law firm spent the last month growing some pretty impressive facial hair for the fund and awareness raising campaign Movember.
The campaign aims to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, in particular prostate cancer and testicular cancer, and we are delighted to say that the Martin Kaye “Mo Bros” have raised over £700 through their efforts so far.
Mohammed Ahsan, who took part in the challenge, said: “There was much trimming, grooming and moustache stroking throughout the month, and we’ve had some gentle ribbing from our colleagues over the weeks.
“But in the end, it has all been extremely worthwhile and we’re so grateful to everyone who has supported our efforts – we never thought we’d have raised such a great amount of money, and the donations are still coming in.”
Mohammed was joined in the Movember campaign by three other colleagues from Martin Kaye - David Jones, Jason Round and Giorgio Iaconi.
Senior partner, Graham Davies, said: “The team have worked very hard to cultivate their facial hair, and their appearance has certainly caused a stir both in the office and with our clients.
“It’s great to see our staff supporting such a worthy cause and the generous donations are very much appreciated.”
Movember raised over £79 million last year across the UK and around the world, and organisers are hoping to beat that with this year’s efforts.
The central rule is that those taking part begin the month with a clean-shaven face and then for the entire month they must grow and groom a moustache to highlight the campaign.
