Yes it is that time, and after a month of growing the ‘tache for Movember, here is the final specimen (don’t look if you are faint-hearted). It was good to see so many men take part this year; as it was like being transported back to the 1970′s with so many moustaches on show. More so at the various council buildings I have been to in the last month. There are really some fantastic (yes RW including yours) attempts!
You can still (please) donate by clicking HERE. The Cornwall Council Misfits which includes Scott Mann and Richard Fedorowicz has so far raised £307. Which is fantastic news and I hope we will increase this if some more very kind people donate in the next few days. Thank you to all who have donated to this worthy cause.
Now for the scary pictures!
The last day of the Mo
It is the halfway point in the annual looking silly for Movember. This years attempt has either resulted in fits of laughter, or a hearty well done on seeing me.
Here is the latest picture of my Mo. You could donate to this worthy cause HERE
It is now one week from the start of Movember, and my ‘growth’ is coming alone nicely. Though, the look is anything but!

Today, in the post, amongst the letters and official stuff from Cornwall Council there was a letter containing £100. A simple letter with one sentence. Last year’s Movember I received the same amount, and leading up to the centenary event for Coronation Park and Boating Lake, I received £250.
Same letter format and without any details of the mystery benefactor. On one hand I can understand someone not wishing to be identified, but on the other, I cannot thank them personally. So I will have to thank them this way.
Whoever you are, thank you again for the generosity you have again shown.

Yes folks, Movember is here and for the month of November I will be growing a moustache and in turn I will make myself look even more ridiculous than normal. The aim of Movember is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. More details HERE.
Last year our little team raised just over £430 which was fantastic. The following scary picture is my finished attempt.
If you can spare a penny or pound you can donate HERE. Even better, why not grow a tache and raise awareness of men’s health.
The fat lady is singing as I have reached the end of Movember and my attempts at growing a ‘tache. As this is the first time I have ever grown a moustache I am rather pleased with it. In fact, I have grown rather attached to it, but not so much I am going to keep it!
I would like to say thank you to everyone (even those who laughed at me every time they saw me) who have supported me and my colleagues during this period. The response has been great. There has been many generous donations to this cause to both me individually and to the team as a whole. So far we have raised around £430, but I hope this could reach £500 with a few last minute donations. If you feel you can donate click this LINK.
Below are a few pictures of a few of the team, my final ‘tache, and its end….

It is day 22 in my bid to grow a ‘tache for Movember. The response to this cause has been great, not just financially, but making people aware of men’s health issue. Men historically are not the best when it comes to getting a health check, or going to the doctors.
Many people have been generous with their donations to me, and the team I am in. I would like to thank them. However, one act of generosity have really humbled me. If you remember I blogged about receiving a letter in the post with £50 in it. With the money was a simple typed letter saying ‘a donation for your participation in Movember’.
In Monday’s post was another letter, with another £50 inside. Again, no name, address; just a simple note saying:
“Please find enclosed the remaining half of my donation to you for your participation in Movember. I apologize for sending it to you as two seperate amounts; this was purely due to available funds at the time”
Apologize? Who ever you are, you have no need to apologize. I only wish I could thank you in person for your outstanding generosity. Thank you, thank you.
Now for another ‘scare the kids’ picture of me sporting my day 22 ‘tache.
