Grow­ing a mo was all the go

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MONTO’S Movem­ber cam­paign has come to an end.

The fundraiser con­cluded with a so­cial cricket match and shave-off at the town’s sports ground with a crowd of about 50 bid­ding farewell to the event for 2012.

Ap­prox­i­mately $2000 was raised thanks to gen­er­ous help from the Monto com­mu­nity to raise aware­ness of men’s health ini­tia­tives.

Or­gan­iser Natalie Pointon, who also or­gan­ised the Chicks in Pink breast can­cer cam­paign, said she was im­pressed.

“Iwas very happy,” she said.

“I didn’t think any­one would sign up so I was thrilled to see the num­ber who did turn out.

“Please sign up for next year to make it even big­ger.”
