George Adam, Paisley’s Member of the Scottish Parliament, has put his charity promoting tactics where his mouth is, or rather on his top lip as he grows a moustache for Movember. Movember is a movement to promote mens’ health issues, specifically prostrate and testicular cancer. During the month of November men around the world grow a moustache, sometimes sponsoring their facial hair growth to raise funds for health charities.
Speaking on his Movember attempt, George said; ‘This is the first time that I have attempted to grow a moustache for Movember. It is a great way to raise awareness and funds for health issues that affect many men.
‘I have also been spurned on by the top lip adornment which used to be sported by my St Mirren hero Tony Fitzpatrick, who is also joining in Movember this year.
‘I must pay tribute to Kenny Lang, a St Mirren Supporter, who came up with a team on the Movember website called ‘The Tony Fitzpatrick Tache Squad’ to encourage like minded people to take part in the event.
‘If anyone would like to donate to the Movember cause then you can go to the website http://uk.movember.com. You can just give a donation to the charities involved or you can search for my name and sponsor my facial hair growth for the month.’
