A Close Shave

A group of East Durham College students ran a Movember campaign celebration on Thursday 1st of December at the College’s Peterlee Campus.

The four students, who are studying Creative Media Production, organised the event as part of their course. They also designed their own posters and leaflets to promote the event.

During the event student bands played live on stage and for the finale, Media Studies Lecturer; Matthew Taylor took part in a ‘live shave’.

The students raised a total of £61.70 for the Movember Foundation through the sale of fake moustaches and donations throughout the day.

Movember is a moustache growing charity event held during the month of November each year which raises funds and awareness for men’s health. Funds raised benefit The Prostate Cancer Charity, The Institute of Cancer Research and the Movember Foundation.
