'Movember' Masterpieces . . .
MALES at Duchy College Rosewarne have been showing off their 'Movember' efforts this week as the month draws to a close but will any be keeping them?!
A number of staff and students have been supporting this year’s ‘Movember’ campaign, where growing a moustache helps to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
Matt Siggs, Project Manager for the Rural Business School at the College, said: “It’s a great cause and a brilliant way to raise awareness. I’ve had mixed reactions about mine, once you get past the itching stage its fine but I will be shaving it off tonight! Next year I want to get more people involved at the College in the hope to raise more money and awareness.”
Land-based Technology Diploma student Phil Taylor, from Newquay, added: “My dad died of cancer so it’s a cause that’s close to my heart. I thought it would be great to make people laugh and raise some money at the same time. It’s all good for raising awareness and I may even keep mine for a week or two longer – if my girlfriend allows it!”
Conservation Course Manager Nick Taylor said: “I started mine a little late in to the month but it’s been great fun and good to get involved. Next year I’ll start on time - I already know what look I want to go for!”
Between them the lads have managed to raise just over £150 for the cause.
Andrew Counsell, Head of Duchy College, said: “Fundraising is very important to both staff and students; it’s great to see people getting involved and raising money for such a good cause.”
