Almost time to shave off the mo's

IT IS nearing the end of November which means that Movember is almost over as well.

Many of the mo bros in the Whitsundays will be breathing a sigh of relief that it is only five more sleeps until the moustache can be removed from their top lip.

Whitsunday Times Movember team member Sam Beattie recognises that women too will be counting down the days.

“From a women's perspective, it's not a great look for a number of guys, including myself,” he said.

While Movember is a bit of fun for all involved, it also has a very serious side.

Funds raised from teams and individuals during the campaign in Australia are equally distributed between programs targeting male depression and prostate cancer.

The Whitsunday Times Movember unit, which includes staff members Sam Beattie, Zac Bailey and James Tolmie, has so far raised $305.

The team representing the Reef Gateway Hotel have raised $1000 which doesn't include the collection tins yet to be counted for the worthy cause.

Proserpine Police have joined forces with Whitsunday Police and are also supporting the cause. Their team of 17 mo bros have managed to raise $547.

Mr Beattie said every cent of the donation has been thoroughly appreciated by the boys.

He added that if any would like to donate more, please do by going to http://au.movember.com/mospace/665430/

Club Croc Airlie Beach is holding a Movember Fundraiser from 6pm this Saturday night with live entertainment starring Nathan Kennedy. There will be heaps of raffle prizes to give away plus prizes for the best moustache and funniest moustache which should make for a good spectacle.
