Hair-raising charity stunt

Kensington Mortgages’ marketing team is raising cash for charity by growing facial hair.

Dubbing this month ‘Mo-vember’ the team have downed their razors and will each be sporting fetching moustaches by the time of the Kensington Christmas party on November 28.

Taking inspiration from the likes of Ian Botham, Earl Hickey from TV show My Name is Earl and even Kazakhstan favourite Borat, the boys at Kensington are growing moustaches in an attempt to raise mon-ey for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Kensington Mortgages staff taking part include Alex Hammond, PR manager, Ian Giles, director of marketing, Keith Wardell, product development manager and James Long, credit risk underwriter.

Hammond says: “Beyond the relief of not having to shave, we have discovered an altogether more irritating world of itching and realising that our efforts to raise money make us look a lot like Gary Neville – or maybe that’s just me.

“We might have lost our dignity but Mortgage Strategy readers can help us get through the month of Mo-vember with pride by helping us to support the great work of Macmillan Can- cer Support and donating money by going to the web- site www.justgiving.com/mo-vember.”
