As I wrote back at the start of last month, I once again took part in “Movember” this year.
For four weeks my upper lip and jowls became an adoptive home to a huge, hairy caterpillar, a façade of facial fungus.
And while my mo mutated, I did my best to raise a bit of mo-ney for the Movember Foundation.
While it was a bit of a slow start, I finished with a furry flourish of florins and this year I managed to raise a total of $311 – smashing my previous record of $234 in 2012!
So I have a few people to thank:
Peter and Mary Nixon from my cricket club who donated $10
My old schoolmate Karrie Stephens form Black and White who donated $10
My Christchurch cousin Leisa Thomas who donated a whopping $100
The staff at NOW’s head office who did a quick whip-around and raised $16
Lyn Bailey form the HB Project for her $20 to put me over the $300 mark
And finally, my workmates, who donated a massive $135 in a whip-around on the last working day of Movember.
Thank you all for your support and donations in making this my most moneyed Movember!
