Southampton Airport’s fire crew have raised over £500 growing moustaches last month as part of the ‘Movember’ global campaign to raise raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Their final amount will also be match funded by the BAA Communities Trust.
An appropriately named Fire Fighter Mark Hair, instigated the activity and said:
“Everyone at the station has a fantastic enthusiasm for doing things for charity and I knew that they would embrace this challenge. All along we’ve been encouraging each other and swapping tips for keeping our moustaches soft and tidy like shampooing and conditioning them daily. Our wives, girlfriends and everyone at the airport have been really supportive, but most can’t wait for us to shave them off!”
