Simplehuman’s UK team became considerably hairier in November and in doing so raised almost £1,400 for the Movember charity.
The month-long event involves the growing of moustaches to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer charities, and Simplehuman assembled a crack team of Mo Bros – Kevin Clark, Colin Bush, Gareth Till and Andrew Gregory, all from the sales division – to do their part.
For four weeks the boys’ razors remained untouched and slowly the tashes grew…along with the funds, which totalled £1,374.
Said team captain Clark: “As usual, some of us hit our targets and others didn’t. Of course I won the competition, but I’m not sure I’ll repeat the experience in a hurry. I remember moustaches being a good look back in the 80s but perhaps they should stay there!”
Meanwhile, Children in Need has also benefited from Simplehuman’s fund-raising efforts, with a silent auction bringing in over £160.
