Movember moustaches are no more after firies raise $2000
LADIES of Gladstone, rejoice.
On Saturday the handlebars, toothbrushes and pencil moustaches of Gladstone's Queensland Fire and Rescue Service will be gone.
And with them, plenty of facial hair that's invaded upper lips across the region, all in the name of men's health.
The local firies' Movember campaign has seen them raise $2000 for men's health - a step up from last year's efforts.
QFRS firefighter Tom Neville said the boys had a lot of support from the community.
"We had family and friends pitch in, and we got some donations from the community as well," Tom said.
"Next year we're hoping to get a lot more people on board to raise more money."
The firies also received donations from members off the street.
Tom said QFRS Gladstone would continue to support Movember to raise awareness in the community of men's health issues.
"It's something that affects most of us at the station and we all know to get checked out," Tom said.
"The campaign definitely helps."
As for the seediest mo at the Gladstone station?
"That would be Mark, Sam or Brad," Tom said.
