Movember: An everlasting impact on the face of men’s health

CPL Training and CPLe-learning went head-to-head in an internal competition to see which company could raise the most money and, of course, grow the most offensive moustache.

Team Flavour Saver, consisting of David Dasher, Alan Leech, Danny Clark, Adam Evans, Andrew Rannard, Martin Bailey and Stuart Hellon, from CPLe-learning raised a total of £160. A worthy contribution, which was added to by the team’s two drop-outs, whose moustaches ‘blew off in the wind’, Richie Lam and Chris Hellon.

The two Mo Fathers from CPL Training, Peter Moss and James Cox, both sported mighty Horseshoe ‘taches’ and raised a superior amount of £181. The potency of their gaze-drawing facial hair made them the winners of the competition and we hope raised awareness for the Movember Foundation.

The overall total from the CPL Group came to a whopping £341 and will go to men’s health charities supporting Prostate and Testicular Cancer initiatives.

The Movember Foundation, a non-profit organisation, which started as a competition between friends in 2004 has now grown into a global movement with official campaigns from the UK and US to South Africa and New Zealand. The first Movember campaign raised $55,000 (AUS) for men’s health organisations; a total which rose to $124 million (AUS) in 2011.

We would like to congratulate all the men that participated in CPL’s Movember effort and thank everyone who donated. We’re looking forward to Movember 2013!
