Arrow’s hairy endeavours for Movember

Arrow’s hairy endeavours for Movember

Arrow Business Communications Limited raised over £18,000 for Movember through sheer hairy determination on the part of our menfolk and sterling support from our MoSistas.

WEYBRIDGE, SURREY, UK (9th December 2013): The hairy gauntlet was laid down back in October and a manly challenge issued. Such was the enthusiasm from our staff that 53 out of 65 male Arrow employees courageously stopped shaving and started cultivating as much top lip fluff as possible.

Not to be left out, Arrow’s female employees have been unstinting in their support for their moustache growing colleagues during this bristling but sometimes itchy month. Our boys have received advice and encouragement along the way with the MoSistas organising a fun packed Movember Day for the whole organisation. Cakes and lunch were sold for donations, and throughout the day competitions and raffles took place. The hairy frivolities even included the administrations of a professional barber.

We are extremely proud of our 120 employees for raising so much money. Our donation to this worthy cause puts us in the Top 20 on the Movember Leaderboard, rubbing shoulders with some of the UK’s largest and most prestigious organisations.

Chris Russell, CEO of Arrow Business Communications, says “I don’t think that anyone could have forecast how this has taken off across the company. As so much effort has been put in to this great cause Arrow has matched the £9,053 raised by the entire Arrow team taking our total to £18,106.”

“The whole company has thrown their support into raising awareness of men’s health issues, we have raised far more money than we could ever have expected and had a lot of fun along the way. It has been a rewarding and highly entertaining experience for us all”, finishes Russell.
