Close Shave for JMW's Personal Injury Team
Staff at Manchester based law firm JMW has raised thousands of pounds for a Prostate Cancer charity by growing moustaches.
Over 20 staff mainly from JMW’s personal injury department took part in a Movember fundraiser by not shaving throughout the whole of November and growing moustaches. The idea of Movember is to challenge men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The group all started on 1 November clean shaven and then grew a moustache for the entire month. The moustache is a symbol for men’s health, which helps to raise awareness and funds for cancers that affect men.
The Movember participants at JMW raised more than £2500 which they will donate to The Prostate Cancer Charity (TPCC), the UK’s leading charity for prostate cancer.
Lee McGovern, Business Manager at JMW, who organised the fundraiser, commented;
“Movember seemed like a fun and effective way to raise awareness and much needed funds for an important charity such as prostate cancer. The whole month has been great fun, and has caused much amusement in the office especially towards the end when some of the group where sporting some very fetching moustaches. We are extremely pleased about the total amount raised for the charity but I know that most of the group are looking forward to shaving their moustaches off.”
