Movember Fever Hits Higos!Friday 1st November 2013
This November, twelve members of staff at Higos Insurance Services, aptly named The Higos Hairy Brokers, will down their razors in aid of men’s health awareness campaign “Movember.”
Paul Brookes, Chris Wilde, Ally Gillies, Matt Jones, William Gledhill, Scott Norton-Ashley, James Reilly, Jacob Friett, Joe Viner, Colin Taylor, Edward Lewis and Jonathan Cooper will be growing moustaches throughout the month in a bid to raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer.
Since its humble beginnings in Australia, Movember has taken the world by storm and raised more than £92 million around the globe last year.
Team captain Paul Brookes said: “Movember is an excellent way of raising awareness for a cause that can be overlooked or considered embarrassing. With campaigns like Movember, men can feel more comfortable about coming together to make a difference in their world. I’d like to thank all our Movember participants, who I hope will grow some fetching moustaches.
“We are, of course, eager to raise as much money as possible for this great cause and would appreciate any donations, which can be found at our team’s dedicated Movember page - http://moteam.co/higos-hairy-brokers.”
On 27 November The Higos Hairy Brokers will be hosting a staff quiz in Glastonbury to raise additional funds for the charities. Donations of prizes would be very gratefully received – please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
