KNAUF DRYWALL - Move Over Movember: Knauf’s Beardtober Beat You To It!

It’s the month of Movember, when men join the recent tradition of growing moustaches in order to raise money for men’s health charities. A fine idea: but it’s time for Movember to move over as, this year, Knauf Drywall’s Beardtober beat it to the charitable finish by a hair’s breadth.

The company renamed the tenth month ‘Beardtober’ and sought to bristle with facial hair from the first and until the beginning of that boring old Movember in order to raise money for Prostrate Project. And that objective was met in whiskery style, with the company raising over £7000 for the charity.

“The idea was that anyone in the business who can grow facial hair should do so and donate £25 to The Prostate Project for the privilege, while raising sponsorship from friends and family, as well as ‘non-growing’ colleagues, customers and suppliers” explains Ian Dean, Sales and Marketing Director.

To best judge who produced the best beard in Beardtober, all Knauf Drywall participants participated in a controlled ‘shave off’ on September 30th – with David Riddell, National Account Controller, receiving an award for sprouting the most prolific set. There was also an award for the worst beard and this was given to Dan Dixon, Flooring Business Development Manager.

Ian continues: “We were in a pretty dishevelled state during Beardtober and it sure was an itchy month, but it was all for a very good cause.”

The Prostrate Project is a Guildford-based charity, run entirely by volunteers, committed to giving men a better chance of beating prostate cancer. The charity has raised over £4million in the last 11 years, and the funds brought in by Knauf Drywall’s Beardtober will help in increasing awareness of prostate cancer and funding state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment centres.
