McArdle Meats Backing Movember
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.
