A team of fundraisers at Brean Splash has raised hundreds of pounds for men’s charities by growing moustaches doing ‘Movember’.

“We’ve been raising funds and awareness this Movember for all the dads, brothers, sons and mates in our lives,” said a spokesman.

The lads taking part – Craig, Adam, Jake, Jeff and Ollie – have raised a total of £750 during the month and are understandably “very pleased” at the amount and have thanked all those who suppported them.

The Movember initiative started 15 years ago as a way to get people talking about men’s health issues and raise money through donations to charities on behalf of those taking part.

Since that time, it has become a global movement listed as one of the top 100 global non-Governmental organisations raising over $600million for various charities.

The key aims of growing a moustache as part of Movember are the raising of funds for male cancer charities and mental health foundations and raising awareness of issues men often don’t discuss around their health.
