Mos are a real gas at QCLNG Curtis Island worksite

MOUSTACHES have been popping up quicker than modules at the QCLNG site at Curtis Island this month.

More than 100 men and women in the Bechtel workforce have been trying their luck at the annual Movember fundraiser.

Teams have raised more than $11,000, with a few days of fundraising still to come.

James Whitworth and Greg Kendall have been leading the way in the effort and have challenged their Bechtel workmates on other projects.

Greg Kendall said that while there was a serious message behind the cause, the teams had put some creativity and flare into the fundraiser.

"People have had a lot of fun with Movember this year, sticking mos on buses and pieces of equipment, but they also haven't forgotten why we are fundraising," he said.

"It's for a great cause, and everyone has been very generous in their efforts to support financially as well as spread the word across site."

Teams across the three projects have raised funds through a range of activities including sausage sizzles, cake sales and raffles.

Donations to all three teams can be made via movember.com.au.
