MD Nicola Robinson challenged the workforce to go hairy in support of the Movember movement this month.  “Movember raises awareness of men’s health issues, and our industry is generally male dominated so we thought it would be good fun to take part in this and help raise funds for Prostate and Testicular charities”.
