Entrepreneurs Forum members are to join forces to raise funds for a men’s cancer charities this month…but their appearance in doing so might not be to everyone’s liking!

Better Brand Agency’s Mark Easby (@easbynow) and Declan Metcalfe (@DeclanMetcalfe) are joining forces with Quay2 Media’s Christian Cerisola (@ChristianCerisola) for ‘Movember’, a special month-long awareness campaign which aims to raise much needed funds for The Prostate Cancer Charity and Everyman by encouraging all males to grow a moustache throughout November.

The trio are a part of a wider group of ten who have joined the North East-based ‘Taching Aboot’ team (@MovemberNE), which is captained by Martin Stout from the North East Times. Organisers of Movember have encouraged those taking part to form teams to offer mutual fund-raising support and share all-important grooming tips.

Mark, Declan and Christian are now appealing for sponsors to help their team become one of the most successful in the North East. The trio have even opened up the bidding for the privilege of being the lucky individual to whip off their facial hair at the end of the month.

Mark Easby said: “The debate has been long and passionate among the team as to which styles of ‘Mo’ would suit each of us. It’ll be interesting to see, come the end of the month, who has the ability to grow the best moustache.

“Critically, we are now looking for sponsors, as well as bidders and perhaps a suitable venue for the ‘shave off’ at the end of November. Those looking to donate or bid can do so by going on the Movember website and searching for the ‘Tasching Aboot’ team.”

Christian said: “Facial hair is like Marmite. You either love it or hate it. The wife is already dreading this month and has offered double for me NOT to take part. Movember offers a chance to fulfil that that deep rooted desire which I think exists in every male to have a moustache for just one time in their life.

“On a serious note, however, Movember is a great way to raise awareness of a very real problem for hundreds of thousands of men in the UK so I hope all the team can raise much needed funds for these very important charities. “

Donations, bids and messages of support can be made at http://uk.movember.com/. Search individual members or the team name, ‘Taching Aboot’.
