Prolific fund-raisers at the Kent-based financial services company, Payday Express, aren't ones to turn down a charity challenge– and so, as has become an annual tradition, they're once again fully embracing this year's Movember national appeal.

The company's male staff are putting their money where their mouths – or rather, their top lips – are and changing their own looks, as well as the face of men's health, by boosting awareness and raising money for research into men's health, and in particular prostate and testicular cancer.

To those taking part, their moustaches are as much a symbol of their commitment to raising money for charity as the effort put in by anyone who runs or walks for a good cause.

Chris Gillard, Business Development Manager for Payday Express, has set up a Movember Financial team, through which staff can support their colleagues by pledging donations towards research into cancers affecting men.

Chris said "We already have moustaches – or mos – in a wide variety of colours, textures and styles around the office, and our female colleagues are being encouraged to get involved in the fun and support the cause by sporting fakes."

"The company has also offered a prize for the staff member whose mo raises the most".

“Movember is a fantastic charity that puts the spotlight on men’s health in a fun and innovative way. This fresh approach to fundraising is always lapped up by our staff - it’s not surprising that this campaign has so much support across the world.”

The Payday Express office walls are adorned with posters publicising the event, so that no visitor is in any doubt about their dedication to the cause – and of course, they are encouraged to make a donation before they leave.
