Katapult - Movember

Our very own Furry Katapult team successfully completed a whole month of growing some pretty impressive facial hair all in the name of charity. They came up with this image, amongst others, in the hope it might help them look a bit cooler.

I personally would like to say a big thank you to all the guys who took part (and to David Hayward from Pixel-Lab who joined Furry Katapult for the month). The team raised a collective £645.50! You should all be very proud.

Next, something for the girls?….

Furry Katapult sign up for Movember!

katapult lads - Movember

I have managed to persuade the boys here at Katapult to grow moustaches (or full on beards!) for Movember – the annual month long celebration of the hairy upper lip – to highlight men’s health issues and specifically prostate cancer.

We have set up a page on the Movember site called ‘Furry Katapult’ where welcome visitors can go to check out the development of the boys’ hairy faces and hopefully sponsor our group with all proceeds going to the Prostate Cancer Charity.

To date Movember has raised over £30 million globally for the fight against prostate cancer and more importantly, as a direct result, male awareness has improved with Movember helping to spread health messages directly to millions all over the world. Please see the Movember site for more details and to join up yourself!
