Vacancy Filler's hairy tale comes to an end

The Vacancy Filler employees have completed a long month of cultivating their nose neighbours for Movember. A hair raising £453.75 (incl gift aid) has been donated by admiring onlookers and embarrassed spouses alike.

The face of the charity is obviously a lot of fun but the cause behind it is serious. With men ‘s life expectancy being on average 6 years less than women’s, Movember looks to help combat prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. In 2014, £11.7 million was raised by the UK and £55.6 was donated worldwide; so we’re looking forward to seeing how our contribution affects the figure for 2015.

Movember’s hairy tale began in 2003 when friends: Travis Garone and Luke Slattery met up for a beer in Melbourne, Australia. They coupled a wish to give to a cause that was close to them with their appreciation to the out-of-fashion lip luggage. A decade later and the charity is one of the biggest organisations in the world with over 20 countries participating in the effort.
