Movember gentlemen raise cash

Published:  29 November, 2012

This "Movember" saw Sean Dunne, Laurence Parkinson and Jason Hawkes from Palladium Building Supplies, Kingsbridge, Devon raise over £500 for causes related to mens health.

The group calling themselves The Kingsbridge Gentlemen managed to raise the profile of this important issue by asking customers, suppliers and colleagues to sponsor their campaign.

"I may even keep my moustache" said Mr Parkinson, "I've not grown one since the 1970s and my wife commented that it made me look younger."
