Moustache for Movember
November was a hair-raising month for litigation partner Paul Gordon and his client Joseph Purcaro, who joined forces to support Movember, a moustache-growing charity event that raises funds for men’s health.
The challenge is to grow a moustache during the month of November. Between them, the sprouting pair have personally raised over £500 for the charity. Joseph Purcaro, a long-standing Willans’ client, is operations director at Joedan Manufacturing UK Limited.
Movember’s primary aim is to raise awareness and understanding of men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and depression. In the UK alone, the organisation has raised more than £3million in just two years, with all the cash going directly to The Prostate Cancer Charity.
Paul Gordon said: “It’s been a ticklish 30 days, but well worth it to support such a worthwhile cause. Unfortunately, my wife, Judy, is not a big fan of my new facial accessory so I suspect she will be standing by with razor and shaving foam at one minute past midnight tonight.”
