More than 80 Marshall employees have signed up for Movember to grow moustaches to help raise funds for men’s health, which particularly includes prostate cancer. These employees are from across the Group of Companies, including some in Canada and The Netherlands.
Marshall employees sign up for Movember
The campaign is being organised by Chris Owen of Marshall Aerospace, who said: ‘It is fantastic that we have got so many employees signed up for Movember this year and we have set ourselves an ambitious campaign of raising more than the £8,000 we raised in 2011.’
Terry Holloway, Group Support Executive of the Marshall Group of Companies said: ‘It is fantastic that so many of our employees are taking part in this important National Campaign and I am looking forward to judging some fine moustaches at the end of the event on Friday 30 November ‘
A number of Marshall employees taking part in the campaign gathered to have their photograph taken without moustaches on Thursday – the first day of Movember. They are pictured in front of Marshall of Cambridge’s Head Office Building.
