Movember. Getting hairy to care about men's health.
Every year a handful of guys from the 75 strong staff down at Bowater's has a crack at Movember. The opportunity to grow some ridiculous facial hair that is not part of their everyday "normal" look is too good to pass up it seems.
For the last couple of years we have decided to make it all official and get involved in Movember properly, with a proper Movember account and everything! This means that more of us are doing it this year than ever. It is such a good cause that we feel that the entire Bowaters Team can take the matter seriously and do it properly which means some fund raising and moustache growing for a good cause.
Follow our journey by checking back at this section as we will keep a track of the Bowater's Mo Bro's as they develop and cultivate their moustaches. Please take a couple of minutes to visit our official Movember page (click here) and make a donation to us - we will appreciate it and feel that all of the itchiness and scornful looks from our wives and partners will be worth it!
Scroll right down to the bottom of this page to see the beginnings, the latest photos are right here at the top. Haven't they all done well! Appreciate then go and donate! Afterall that this the whole point to all of this - we are in it to raise money AND awareness for a cause near and dear to us - the health of MANkind! Remember folks - the whole point of this is to raise cash - so help us by donating!!!

The Movember moustache growing experiment has ended, with those of the BMG team that participated creating some great efforts. The moustache choice has been as varied as those that have tried to grow them. The Movember opportunity to change it all up for a month has certainly been embraced by some team members, and has got us thinking already about next year.
Hats off to all of these great efforts. The slideshow below shows the moustaches at their end point on the 30th of Movember.
The feedback has been very positive, so next year we think we will do it all a little differently, and take the whole thing to the next level. We have got a great event planned, so watch this space, and remember to check back in 10.5 months time. When you say it like that it doesn't seem that far away!
The next stage of course is the return to normal, or the "killing of the moustache" as some have coined it. This leads nicely into a funny video about said "moustache murder".....
