Staff from Mandeville Veterinary Hospital and north-west London branches of the Goddard Veterinary Group to don moustaches and complete a 10-mile moonlight walk to raise funds for cancer charities.
Staff from the Mandeville Veterinary Hospital and north-west London branches of the Goddard Veterinary Group will don moustaches and complete a 10-mile moonlight walk to raise funds for research into prostate, testicular and breast cancer on November 23.
November – or ‘Movember’ as it has become known by many in recent years – is the month traditionally associated with fundraising for prostate cancer in men.
The walk will start and finish at the Mandeville Veterinary Hospital in Northolt.
Adrian Hayter, practice manager at the Mandeville Veterinary Hospital, said: “We thought that undertaking a moonlight walk, usually associated with fundraising for breast cancer, during ‘Movember’ would be a great way of supporting all of the charities.
“Our female staff members will be creating moustaches from whatever materials they choose so we’re expecting a splendid array on the evening – they will probably be a great deal more fetching than those sported by male members of staff – though we are allowing them to ‘make a mo’ if they don’t want to grow one.”
He added: “We want as many walkers as possible, so anyone who’s interested in taking part can call the Mandeville Veterinary Hospital and we’ll give them all of the details.”
