Local milliner, Ingrid Gibbs from Mistress Milliner, is supporting Movember this month by forcing the manikins on her website to grow moustaches…
Ingrid is very keen to support the charity, Movember because her stepfather had prostate cancer in 2005 and thankfully he has had the ‘all clear’ for over 6 years now, partly due to early diagnosis.
Ingrid says “it is all too easy to dismiss small medical concerns, diagnosis and early treatment of cancer saves lives”.
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
Donations can be made via Ingrid’s website: www.mistressmilliner.co.uk
