Made in Movember – over £600 raised

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements

UPDATE: Well done to all our staff and pupils taking part or donating. A total of £665.48 was raised for the November Campaign on behalf of men’s health.

Over the course of the month brave members of staff and many of our prefects have been cultivating marvellous moustaches. This has all been part of the Movember Campaign that aims to raise awareness of men’s health issues and raise funds for charity.

This Friday 28 November pupils will get their chance to take part – with as many of them as possible wearing stick on moustaches for the day.

Fake moustaches are available to buy for a £1 donation to the charity. They’ll be on sale at interval and lunchtime. Following the formal staff photo on Thursday, all of our staff played their part, donning fake stick-on moustaches or proudly displaying their efforts to grow one over the past month. Well done to all the staff taking part.

This is a fantastic campaign with incredibly worthwhile aims. Please find out more or make a donation via the Movember website.

“Movember” Moscars!

During the month of November some of our senior boys have been growing moustaches as part of the Movember campaign. Movember is a global charity that aims to “have an everlasting impact on the face of mens health.” The Movember Foundation supports programmes linked to health research into prostate and testicular cancer and also mental health issues that affect men.


At S5/6 assembly this morning, the boys proudly displayed their efforts for their year groups. Head Boy Shaun Thomas (6L) narrowly receiving a louder applause than Jack Hosie (6S), won the prize for the best moustache: a pack of 50p disposable razors and an iTunes voucher.

The prizes for the most creative moustaches went to Mr Stewart and Mr O’Neill whose efforts were expertly hand-crafted by Hannah Farman, 5L2.

Well done everyone.
