The Wilts-hair Mo-stabulary take on Movember!

9th November 2018, 10:45am | By Karen |

A team of local police officers are growing facial hair this month to raise money and awareness for men’s health issues.  If you see some of Wiltshire’s police officers looking a little unkempt over the next few weeks, cut them some slack, it’s for a good cause!  A team of coppers are taking part in this year’s Movember – where guys grow some facial hair to raise awareness of male cancers and mental illnesses.

The ladies aren’t sitting by the sideline either, they’re helping to raise money in other ways to support the cause. Inspector Pete Sparrow from Salisbury Community Policing Team, has got himself ready and raring to go for the cause.   Check out this link!

THEIR MO-TIVATION

On their fundraising page, the team said;   “The Wilts-Hair Mostabulary started as fun, but like the hairy top lip, it grew! Over half of Emergency Service workers seek help due to stress & poor mental health. In addition we have team members who have faced cancer.  The MO represents the serious message behind it; it gets people to talk.”

As well as growing the fan-tash-tic hair on their face, the team will get moving too – hoping to cover 1 million metres over the month (collectively!).

The police cars in Wiltshire will also be growing moustaches (well the plastic sort!)

Pete’s challenge will be to Row with a Mo – rowing on an indoor machine, and he’s tasked himself with covering 60 miles for the amount of men who commit suicide every hour.

He hopes the everyone will get involved – police or not.
