Barbers' colourful idea to raise Movember funds
9:10am Saturday 7th December 2013 in North West
A BARBERS added a flash of colour to moustaches for Movember.
Staff at Boys2Men on Bold Street tinted and trimmed the gentlemen of Leigh’s moustaches in return for a donation to the men’s health charity.
Owner Lesley Buxton and employee Liam Rushworth decided to get involved after they were both affected by cancer.
Lesley said: “It was not just about raising money, we wanted to raise awareness as well so we thought if the Movember participants were walking around with bright pink moustaches then people would ask why and the word would spread.
“We want people to know it is ok to go to the doctor and get checked over. Mine and Liam’s dads both died of prostate cancer and we want to spare others the same fate.”
The offer proved popular and one customer even went as far as having pink and turquoise in one techni-coloured moustache.
