A FEW months ago our office was rocked by some shocking news.
One of our much loved colleagues was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The diagnosis came as a complete shock to everyone, not least of all to our colleague.
There were tears in our office, even among male staff.
It was lovely to see men putting their pride aside, supporting each other and showing their emotions so openly.
As our colleague battles, the men in our office decided they needed to do something to support him, and with Movember just around the corner they put their razors in the drawer and started what is set to become a very hairy month.
Taking part in Movember the men in our office have all banded together to raise money for prostate cancer research.
During November the aim is to raise funds and awareness for men's health, with a focus on prostate cancer and depression in men.
Participants start the month off with a clean-shaven face, and then grow a moustache.
Two weeks in and the men in our office are all starting to look very prickly indeed.
Money raised is shared equally between programs targeting prostate cancer and male depression.
