Specsavers Sittingbourne has raised £360 for the Movember Foundation after a month of moustache-growing and fundraising in store.

Supportive team at Specsavers

Staff members Craig, Callum and Luke grew their facial hair and Christopher, trainee dispensing optician from the store, braved the cold and swam 30km throughout the month. The whole team joined in the moustache movement and supported their colleagues by donning their own fake moustaches on their last fundraising day.

Donating to a vital cause

Specsavers Sittingbourne store director, Caroline Matthews says: ‘It was wonderful seeing all of our staff doing their bit to raise money for the Movember Foundation.

‘Craig, Callum and Luke managed to grow impressive moustaches (much to the delight of the team!) and Christopher did a fantastic job putting his swimming skills to the test. We’re very thankful to the community for donating to such a vital cause, which helps thousands of men across the country.’

The Movember Foundation

The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed men living healthier and longer lives by fundraising for projects focusing on illnesses such as prostate cancer and poor mental health.
