You are now entering a mo zone
If you were wondering why there seemed to be an influx of gentlemen in the community donning moustaches, the answer would be that RAF High Wycombe was taken over by Movember!
Each year, during the month of November, a charity called ‘Movember’ is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the issue of men’s health. With the permission of the Station Commander, gentlemen at RAF High Wycombe have been enthusiastically growing their ‘tashes’ and raising money, all with a little in-house competition along the way!
All male members of PSF were attempting to grow moustaches, under the team banner of ‘118 118 Sqn’ and hosted numerous events throughout the month, culminating in an evening of ‘Tash Bashing’ on 29 Nov 12.
Not to be left out, the ladies in PSF were also supporting the cause by becoming ‘Mo Sistas’ (individuals dedicated to supporting the Mo Bros in their lives through their moustache growing journey) to host the ‘Great Movember Bake-off’, bringing in tasty cakes and biscuits to win the title of PSF’s Best Baker, and of course raise money along the way! Although a very tough competition, congratulations go to SAC Sam Bradley, who took the title with his delectable cheesecake.
The High Wycombe Regt Section also got involved this year, growing ‘Trucker Tashes’ for Movember, with a cruel twist…the individual that raised the least amount of money for the weakest tash, not only lost his moustache on the 30 November, but had his legs waxed at the same time by the rest of the team! Commiserations go to Cpl Scott Sutherland who, after losing the competition, now has a pair of silky smooth legs to match his top lip…
