Jamie Storey grows a handlebar moustache for charity
Whitehouse Scientific’s managing director, Jamie Storey, showed his support for ‘Movember’ by joining more than 850,000 fellow ‘Mo Bros’ from around the world in growing facial hair throughout the month of November.
From humble beginnings, ‘Movember’ has become a global campaign aimed at raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. It is one of a number of charity initiatives supported by the Whitehouse Scientific team.
‘Although I have spent the month looking a bit of a fool it was worth it for such a great cause,’ said Storey.
‘With awareness being the key, it was a pleasure explaining why I had grown a handlebar moustache to the many who have asked. I look forward to trying out a new style next year.’
Funds raised by ‘Movember’ in the UK are directed to The Prostate Cancer Charity and Institute of Cancer Research, which supports programmes aimed at increasing early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reducing the number of preventable deaths.
To date, ‘Movember’ has raised nearly £65m, with £15m coming from the UK. A total of £170m has been collected since 2004.
