McAr­dle Meats Back­ing Movem­ber

The Argus - - NEWS -

THE butch­ers in McAr­dle Meats, Clan­bras­sil Store have been sport­ing hip­ster mous­tache for the past month as they got be­hind the Movem­ber cam­paign to raise funds to in­crease aware­ness about can­cer among men.

Hav­ing lost two col­leagues, Gerry Cros­bie and Mick Healey to can­cer, the team de­cided to cul­ti­vate their fa­cial hair in their mem­ory dur­ing the month of Novem­ber.

Pe­ter McCloskey, Tony Byrne, Jamie Mackin, Ja­son Moore, Paul Dunne and Sean Dunne aban­doned their nor­mal clean shaven look for the cause which is close to their hearts.

‘It’s been a bit of craic,’ says Pe­ter. ‘ We got great feed­back from ev­ery­one com­ing into the shop. We were also get­ting a few laughs as well as some of our cus­tomers were also do­ing Movem­ber so we were com­par­ing growth.’

They can’t, how­ever, keep their new mous­tache as work­ing in a food en­vi­ron­ment, they must be clean shaven.

The team would like to thank all cus­tomers who do­nated money and ev­ery­one who sup­ported them dur­ing Movem­ber.
