Movember Success

Thank you for supporting us through Movember

10 Members of our male staff took part in Movember 2013, forming our team the “ŠKODA Groomsters”. They simply had to grow a moustache for the whole month of November. There were some rules to follow including not allowing your moustache to touch your sideburns or your chin because of course that would be a beard. Everybody had to start the 1st of November clean shaven and had to act like a true gentleman for the entire month.

For some encouragement, we turned it into a competition and had a few prizes up for grabs and our winners are:

Best Moustache         Greg Sampson

Worst Moustache      Lee Pull

Best Fundraiser           Howard Clayton

 

We originally set ourselves a £500 target which we reached after the first 2 weeks! Our total raised was a staggering £1,273 and we would like to say a massive thank you to all our guys for taking part and to all our friends, family and customers for donating. The money raised will goes towards making an impact on mens health which includes:

Living with and Beyond Cancer

Men living with prostate or testicular cancer will have the care needed to be phsically and mentally well.

Staying Mentally Healthy, Living with and Beyond Mental Illness

  • Men are mentally healthy and take action to remain well
  • When men experience mental illness they take action early
  • Men are not treated differently when they experience a mental illness

Men’s Health Research

Movember will fund innovative research that builds powerful, collaborative teams that accelerate improved clinical tests and treatments for prostate and testicular cancer and improved phsical and mental health outcomes for men

In 2014, we aim to raise money throughout the year so keep up to date on our facebook and twitter pages.
