Copping a mo for awareness
EIGHT officers from Springfield police station have ditched the razor for Movember this year.
This is the fourth year the station has teamed up to raise awareness of men’s health issues.
Male officers will grow their moustaches while the women will raise funds and awareness “for all the dads, brothers, sons and mates in our lives”.
Senior Sergeant Geoff Noller said they joined Movember when a dog squad officer was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
“We’re doing it in support of colleagues and friends. To raise awareness with the many people we deal with in the community on a daily basis,” Sen-Sgt Noller said.
Known as Mohemian Rapsody, the team aims to bring more awareness to men’s prostate and testicular cancer and mental health issues.
Snr-Sgt Noller urged men to get regular checks.
“The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health, so this Movember I’m getting on board,” he wrote on the team Movember page.
“I’m raising funds to tackle some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and poor mental health.
“Help me stop men dying too young.”
