SIX chaps have joined together to take part in the annual Movember charity fundraiser.
The team - called ‘Walden Taches’ - comprises Andrew Frostick, Simon Lloyd, Sean O’Sullivan, Peter Riding, Mark Starte and Malcolm White. They are supported by a team of Mo Sistas, who will encourage the Mo Bros, and monitor progress along the way.
The team is committed to growing moustaches for the month of November and in doing so, raise vital awareness and funds for mens health, including prostate and testicular cancer. The facts are that one in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, and this year 40,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed in the UK. Furthermore, 47 per cent of testicular cancer cases occur in men under 35 years and over 90pc occur in men under 55 years.
Mark Starte said: “The team is very pleased to support this important charity and to help raise awareness of mens health. All donations will be gratefully received and our progress (or lack of it) will be documented on our Movember web page.
“We are also very grateful to our Mo Sistas for their support and willingness to don a tache for our publicity photo - I think they look pretty amazing!”
If anyone would like to support the team, log ontomovember.com/team/423089 to donate. Alternatively, cash donations can be left with Mr Starte at the Tourist Information Centre.
