Movember Mastershow the fearless men of Gray Dawes seized the mo-ment to raise over £4,000 for charity
On 1st November, a brave group of Gray Dawes Group gentlemen lay down their razors and vowed to abstain from shaving their upper lips for an entire month. This selfless act of facial furniture endeavour was not for vanity – far from it. Our fearless friends were, in fact, taking part in the Movember challenge – to grow a moustache in order to raise money for men’s health charities. Setting themselves a target of £1,000, what they actually achieved – both financially and follically – exceeded all expectations!
Movember, if you’re unaware, is a leading charity working to change the face of men’s health. Their causes include mental health and suicide prevention, as well as medical research and support for victims of prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
Movember was launched back in 2003 and initially had 30 Mo Bros. The mo-vement has since grown to over 6 million worldwide. With such a great cause, it wasn’t difficult for us to find willing volunteers who wanted to make a difference for men’s health.
We assembled a team of 24 Gray Dawes Mo Bros who were willing to seize the mo-ment and cultivate the best facial furniture they could, all in aid of charity. You can meet our Dynamic Two Dozen, one hair at a time, right here.
Throughout the month, the guys were not allowed to ‘fake it’ – which meant no beards or goatees. We’re talking pure moustaches only! An by harnessing the power of the ‘mo’ to create conversation and raise awareness and funds for men’s health, our might Mo Bros got to work!
Through different fundraising initiatives we set ourselves the target of raising £1,000 by the end of the November. But just three days in to their challeng, the Bros had already smashed that goal. So, in true Captain Tom style, they hoped for more.
What the guy’s acheived was remarkable – over four times their target! At the time of this article going to press, the men of Gray Dawes TASH CLUB had raised over £4,000!
All of us here at Gray Dawes Group are incredibly proud of the guy’s acheivements. We’d like to say a HUGE well done to each and everyine one of them… and yes, you can shave it off now! And on behalf of our conquering Mo Bros, a massive thank you to everyone who donated and supported their cause. THANK YOU!
