Mo Bros raise money for charity - December 2012

A group of brave teachers at Writhlington School have recently endured the challenging and dangerous task of growing a moustache throughout the whole month of November. The group set their top lips to work and underwent the itchy undertaking in aid of the menís health charity, Movember UK.

Each Mo Bro started the 1st of November with a clean-shaven face. For the entire month each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache. There is to be no joining of the mo to the sideburns (thatís considered a beard), thereís to be no joining of the handlebars to the chin (thatís considered a goatee).

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often-ignored issue of menís health.

The group managed to generate a hair raising £429 for menís health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.
