Bar­men given a close shave

Bray People - - Schoolsreport -

MOVEM­BER, the month for­merly known as Novem­ber, is now of­fi­cially a thing of the past - as are the mous­taches of four of the staff at Hol­land’s bar on the Main Street.

They had their lov­ingly cul­ti­vated fa­cial hair ex­pertly re­moved by two of the ladies from Head­erz bar­ber shop, on Sun­day night in the pub.

An­thony, Alan, Stephen and John, raised be­tween them a to­tal of € 1,071.60 for men’s health, specif­i­cally prostate can­cer. A to­tal of €208,000 was raised so far na­tion­wide, with more than 1,000 Ir­ish ‘Mo Bros’ tak­ing part in the global ini­tia­tive.

Brian was the MC for the evening, and the cus­tomers and staff all had a great time, hav­ing had a great time slag­ging the lads off over the course of the month.

John, who al­ways had a mous­tache and grew a beard for the cause, said that now his face is hair-free he doesn’t recog­nise him­self in the mir­ror any­more!

cus­tomers gen­er­ously brought in some spot prizes, which were raf­fled off on the evening, adding to the to­tal amount raised.

The money raised by Movem­ber will be do­nated to Action Prostate Can­cer - an ini­tia­tive of the Ir­ish Can­cer So­ci­ety. It will be used to ed­u­cate men on risk fac­tors for de­vel­op­ing prostate can­cer, pro­vide sup­port and in­for­ma­tion to those who have been di­ag­nosed, and high­light the need for men to be treated in spe­cial­ist cen­tres.
