Pupils and staff raise money in aid of Movember

3rd December 19

Following the success of last year, the 6th Form decided that they wanted to support this worthwhile charitable cause again this year. The charity works with a number or organisations to raise awareness and funds for issues such as prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Pupils and staff have been growing moustaches and committing to 60km of movement to raise money for men’s health. The figure raised so far is £480 with more funds still coming in.

“I am incredibly proud of the pupils and staff who have supported Movember this year. It is important to challenge the status quo and to de-stigmatise male mental health issues. Our donations will help men all over the world live happier, healthier and longer lives. Many thanks to everyone who has sponsored us.” Kate Taylor, Head of 6th Form

The before and after images certainly show the difference for those pupils and staff who decided to grow moustaches rather than commit to 60km of movement.
