Arlington Road Pharmacy raises over £300 for Movember
(Posted on 04/12/13)
An Eastbourne pharmacy ended November in style after a month-long fundraiser for Movember.
Eight members of staff from Arlington Road Pharmacy and the adjoining Arlington Road Surgery took part in the global event, raising over £300.00 between them.
A display of various styles of moustache were put on show in the pharmacy, with customers encouraged to vote for their favourite by donating to the Movember Foundation.
Hazel Winter, who works at Arlington Road Pharmacy and organised the event, said: “We’re really pleased to have raised so much for the Movember Foundation. It’s a very important cause and this is a really fun way to raise awareness.”
Local bakers Bella’s Cupcakes also donated 50 cupcakes, which were put on display in the pharmacy for customers to buy.
Movember is an annual event that encourages men to grow moustaches for the duration of November to raise funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer.
