'Tis the season to grow Moustache's, as say the worldwide charity Movember who help to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG. We’re proud to announce that NetComposites and Composites Evolution have joined them in raising money for these important causes.
This is the 5th year that Movember has taken place and to help increase awareness 5 members of the NetComposites and Composites Evolution teams, also known as Team CompoTache, have taken part. Now on its final days, after a month of strange looks, the guys are sporting some very interesting looks. To be precise there is a Maverick, an Eccentric, and 3 Truckers.
Team CompoTache, or Ben Hargreaves, Miguel Moreira, Lucas Morgan, Kanchan Sanyal and Brendon Weager, have sported their moustaches for nearly a whole month, attending industry events, company meetings, and even a family portrait, now need donations to reward them for their efforts. It's easy to donate, just click here. Everyone at NetComposites and Composites Evolution are extremely grateful for any donations.
According to the Movember website, almost half a million participants raised $174 M last year making them the largest non-government funder of prostate cancer research in the world. They say that Movember aims to forever change the face of men's health through the power of the moustache, by raising awareness and funds that will reduce the number of preventable male deaths by cancer. Since inception as a charity event in 2004, over 1.1 million participants have raised over $174 M for the cause, with official Movember campaigns taking place in ten countries.
The UK's Engineering Industries Association (EIA) and the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) have received confirmation of government funding for UK engineering companies to exhibit at overseas trade shows.
