Movember Draws to an End

Written by Gemma | 21-Nov-2014 15:33:00

With December fast approaching, Movember is drawing to an end for another year.  There’s only two days left for our Mo Bros to add the finishing touches to their fine moustaches that we’ve become so accustomed to seeing.

The guys in the equimedia office really have put in an enormous effort for this worthy cause and on several occasions have even willingly posed for photos so we could monitor their progress! Help them to make 2014 the biggest year yet for the Movember charity and do your bit for men’s health by donating here.

Check out their impressive progress in the photo below!

We’re now well into the month of November and some interesting moustaches are being displayed by those taking part in Movember here in the equimedia office.

Movember is an annual event where participating men (aka Mo Bros) grow a moustache for the 30 days of November in a bid to help “change the face of men’s health”. It all started in Australia and New Zealand in 2004 and has grown in popularity ever since. Run by the Movember Foundation it was introduced to help raise awareness and money for men’s health issues, such as mental health problems, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. In 2007 Movember became a worldwide event with the UK, USA and South Africa amongst the countries participating. In fact last year four million men took part in Movember – we wonder what the figures will be this year!

In the equimedia office, dedication has gone into growing some fine moustaches, with CEO Andrew Burgess and three of our employees; Tom, Mike and Rob getting involved in this worthy cause. Prior to the start Tom predicted - using a complex, or should we say, unknown computerised algorithm – how their moustaches might look like at the end of the month:

Tom – A cross between Hitler and Freddie Mercury
Mike – A cross between Made in Chelsea’s Proudlock and Hulk Hogan
Rob – A cross between Jamie Oliver and Rob Beckett
Andrew – A cross between George Clooney and the character Grumpy from the Muppets

Check out the picture below to see whether you think these predictions are accurate!
