A number of staff members from Aquamoves and council's Active Living department have been taking on the Movember challenge since 1 November.

Movember is the annual month long fundraiser where men are sponsored to grow a moustache in support of the biggest health issues affecting men. These include prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

Tim Dooling, James Harrison, Steve Wilson, Tony Tranter, Jack O'Brien, Graham Walkden, Paul Elshaug, Thomas Van De Berg, Ben Maude and John Houkes have formed the team The Invisible Mo Men (TIMM) and will be attempting to grow moustaches to raise money for men's health programs.

As the hairy month draws to a close, check out how each of the guys have described their mo below.

Duty Supervisor Operations Portfolio – Aquamoves
My mo is something from the 70s and I’ve grown attached to it, as it supports me though the tough times and is a great convo starter.
Support Tim: 

Workgroup Coordinator – Seasonal Outdoor pools
Myself and Greg (my mo) have grown close these past few weeks. Greg is flamboyant, fun and attractive. It will be sad to see him go next week.
Support Ben:

Marketing Officer - Aquamoves
I think my manager summed it up best when she said ‘you’ve made a great sacrifice by growing whatever that is above your lip.’
Support James:

Duty Supervisor - Aquamoves
Support Jack:

Project Manager – Active Living
Subtle, neither quality or quantity.
Support Paul:

Manager – Active Living
Support Tony:

Team Leader – Leisure Facilities
It’s the Mo that I just had to grow. At the start I thought about calling him Jo, but I’ve ended up going with Henry the Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Support Steve:

Duty Supervisor - Indoor Sports Facilities
Blonde mo’s are very unflattering
