Marshall Amplification were one of the main backers of Movember and staff at the Bletchley based company threw themselves into the challenge too – with nearly 30 chaps cultivating ‘Mo’s’ for the month.
Last week, the fairer sex were called upon to judge their efforts, and Luke Green was awarded the prestigious title of King Mo.
“I was really surprised to win the King Mo-grower award, especially given the effort so many others had gone to in grooming theirs,” he said.
“The hardest part of this charity challenge turned out to be not shaving the thing off every morning! I think that Movember is a fantastic cause and I wouldn’t grow a Mo for any other reason.”
Luke’s prize was a set of newly launched Marshall Major Headphones.
Staff hope that the total money raised from their collective Mo-grow will top £2,000.
> In Woburn, staff at Galloway’s Restaurant went Mo-mad too.
David Hay, Matt Chubb, Simon Noble and Luke Broadbent raised a whopping £1,300 from diners who were impressed by their efforts.
“We have enjoyed the banter,” said owner David Hay, “We decided to partake in honour of the late, great Peter Chandler, of Paris House Restaurant in Woburn.”
> Staff at Keyline grew with pride too. Their efforts were part of a nationwide fundraiser for Keyline which raised £20,000.
> Musician Simon Turner, who can be found playing in the city with Apple Shift Seven, was part of a team that raised a bristling £427 for the charity.
