Staff at Christchurch-based, sustainable construction company Above All C6(n) have said goodbye to their razors and are growing some natural ‘insulation’ for Movember.

Movember is a global campaign which challenges clean shaven men to grow a moustache in November and use it as a talking point to highlight men's health issues such as prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Leigh Williams, Max Bird and Scott Garry, of C6(n)’s warehouse and operations team, are raising sponsorship for the amount of facial hair they can cultivate and are also be going chin-to-chin in a contest to see who can grow the most impressive ‘Mo’ by the end of the month.

Leigh said: “I had to shave off a full beard to take part in Movember and it was a bit of a shock. I’ve had it for quite a while and it was pretty bushy.

“My son didn’t recognise me clean shaven and my wife hates it, but it’s for a great cause and looking around at the other guys I don’t really think I’ve got much competition when it comes to growing an impressive tache!”

Max Bird, the youngest member of the team, is taking part in Movember for the first time.

He joked: “There has been lots of banter about the others lending me some of their whiskers, but I’m not worried. I may not be the hairiest amongst us but I like to think my goatee will be bringing some youth and style to the competition.”

Above All C6(n) has developed a form of highly adaptable architecture using cores formed from problem plastics, including unwanted water bottles.

Last month the award-winning company unveiled Pod(o), a reusable accommodation pod it hopes will drastically reduce the waste produced by the festival industry.
