Charles Green’s sales manager becomes thoughtful as his ‘tache grows.

Charles Green’s sales manager Steve Brookes is at the halfway point of his Movember month, growing a moustache while raising money for charity. 

Each week he’s keeping Professional Jeweller in the loop about how his growth is coming along while raising money for men’s health charities with a particular focus on raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer charities.

This week his ‘lip slug’ – as he’s so lovingly dubbed it – has reached an even bushier stage, however Brookes has been in a thoughtful mood following news that a friend was in hospital due to cancer.

"I’m halfway there now and I’m dreading what I am going to look like at the end of the month. I found out that someone I know has been taken into hospital for a six hour operation to remove a tumour. Hopefully it was found earlier enough that this operation will cure the problem totally, and I wish him a speedy recovery.

"Every penny helps not only in going towards finding cures for various forms of cancer, but also to help raise awareness of the issues that men may face so that the signs and symptoms can be recognised and the problem caught early."

Brookes says he has now entered the tickling phase and has already given his ‘tache a "tactical top lip trim" to keep his whiskers nicley shaped. "I’m starting to wonder what I’m going to look like after another two weeks," he said.

Brookes is raising money via his Mo’Bro site, here.
