Cruden’s ‘Movember’ raises £4000

We are delighted to announce that Cruden Group’s Movember campaign has raised over £4000 for the charity.

The staff at Cruden Group got fully behind the annual Movember drive, which raises funds for men’s health, and have achieved their goal of raising over £2000 from donations and sponsorship which has been matched by a donation from the company resulting in just over £4000 being raised in total.   

Movember focuses on three urgent issues - prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide prevention.

Cruden Group’s Finance Director Simon Burrows led the way with his ‘Shave Down’ for the charity on 1st November and many colleagues registered themselves as a Mo Bros and grew a rather fetching array of ‘Mo’s’ over the month. They were fully supported and encouraged by Cruden’s ‘Mo Sistas’, who also acted as judges on the 30th November for the best ‘Mo’.

The Judging Panel of Rachel Tetlow, Lisa Kennerly, Lorraine Armitage & Becky Edwards had a very difficult job of deciding on the winners, which were split into categories:

  • 80’s Throwback
  • Crimewatch’s Most Wanted
  • Look-alikes
  • Mr. Suave

The Movember winners were Peter Harrison-Johnson (80’s Throwback), Paul Buttery (Crimewatch’s Most Wanted), Stuart McCall (Look-alikes) and Dave Woodward (Mr. Suave).

Movember also saw the launch of Cruden’s fitness awareness campaign, the C-Fit initiative, a series of health awareness events sponsored and promoted by the company on personnel wellbeing and preventive healthcare that will help staff members to stay well and to seek early advice and intervention on health issues.

Cruden’s Mo Bros and Mo Sistas were first to positive action on this front, organising daily walks over lunchtime on each Movember day for everyone in the company to improve their daily exercise.
