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 men’s 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 (that’s considered a beard), there’s to be no joining of the handlebars to the chin (that’s 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 men’s health.

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