Ilkley Grammar School teachers go moustache mad for Movember
9:03am Thursday 5th December 2013 in Local news
Students at Ilkley Grammar School have been treated to some strange facial hair in ‘Movember’.
Eighteen members of staff grew moustaches in November to raise more than £1,000 for the Movember charity. It encourages men to grow moustaches and the community to support them in order to raise money for men’s health.
Funds raised are used to help men live with and beyond cancer and to ensure men living with prostate or testicular cancer have the care needed to be physically and mentally well.
Ilkley Grammar School’s Mo Bros were Ben Thompson (Mo Bro captain), Jon Beynon, Stewart Goodbold, Keith Holder, Joe Iliff, Chris Washington, James Ibbertson, Ian Radcliffe, Adam Falkner, Nat Adams, Andy Calvert, Andy Colman, Dave Burrowes, Hughes Mouton, Peter Beaumont, Adam Daly, Phil Haworth, Paul Clark and Tim Milburn.
Mr Thompson was delighted so many staff wanted to join the cause. He said: “It’s really important we highlight the need for men to be healthy and raise awareness of men’s health issues.
“It’s been an itchy month; we’ve all enjoyed the challenge, but we’ll enjoy shaving our moustaches off even more!”
