Teachers form up for Movember

A SYMBOL of the modern gentleman is the moustache and it’s that time of year for the men of the Central Highlands to turn from the clean-shaven look and mo it up for the month of November to raise funds for men’s health.

Emerald State High School teacher, Tim Bateup, is part of the group of teachers raising money for the cause and said in previous years they had raised well over $1000.

“We do know people who have been affected by depression and prostate cancer so we are willing to do anything to help a good cause,” Tim said.

“Movember is a bit of fun, we like having a laugh at ourselves and seeing who can actually grow a decent moustache – as not many of us can.”

Movember is an annual fundraiser to raise money for men’s health partners, beyondblue: the national depression initiative, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Movember Foundation.

Groups of “mo bros” can register their own group by visiting the Movember website, www.movember.com, or join the Central Highlands group by emailing their details to emma.mccullagh@cqrdgp-

.com.au or calling Emma McCullagh on 4982 4233 for more information.

Those who register with the group are invited to the Movember finale on Tuesday, November 30.
