Gable Hall’s male staff are completing a special ‘Movember’ in aid of the Essex Air Ambulance charity.
Last year, they raised just under £1000 last year through members of the PE Dept growing moustaches for the month of November.
From today they have extended the invitation to the other male staff in the school this year to try to beat their target from last year.
So far, there’s around 20 staff promising to take part.
The money raised is normally given to mens health charities. They decided to give their sponsorship to the Essex Air Ambulance last year.
Some of the teachers have close personal connections. One teachers father was assisted by a crew from the Air Ambulance, but they sadly were not able to help him despite their best efforts. The Essex Air Ambulance was his favourite charity and he made regular donations to them.
So, lets get fundraising. Here are some taches from last year. We will be visiting the teachers at the end of the month to see how they get on.

On Shadowe’en (October 31st), the complete moustache region, including the entire upper lip and the handlebar zones, must be completely shaved.
For the entire duration of Movember (Movember 1st – 30th inclusive), no hair shall be allowed to grow in the goatee zone – being any facial area below the bottom lip.
There is to be no joining of the moustache to sideburns.
