Make a Mo for Cancer Research UK

Nottinghamshire’s players have come up with a hair-raising scheme to support beneficiary Paul Franks this month.

They’re all growing sponsored moustaches in aid of Franks’ nominated charity Cancer Research UK.

The idea was inspired by a similar project in New Zealand, where men adorn moustaches for charity during the month of ‘Mo-vember.’

Said Franks: “I’ve been keen to do as much as possible for Cancer Research during the year and when this idea got mentioned in the dressing room there was a near-unanimous thumbs-up.

“It seemed like an entertaining and novel way to raise some money for a very worthy cause. Some of our wives and girlfriends aren’t too happy but we’ve persuaded them it’s a worthwhile sacrifice.

“We’re looking to raise £5,000 over the course of ‘Mo-ugust’ and all donations will be very gratefully received.”

Donations made online by UK taxpayers will mean that Gift Aid will be able to reclaim 28 per cent to go to Cancer Research.
