Harvard supporting worthwhile causes

Harvard Engineering staff members have been getting into the charity spirit dressing up for Children in Need and sporting moustaches for prostate cancer charity Movember.

It is estimated that by the end of November the staff will have raised well over £1000 for the two charities.

Over 100 members of staff donned fancy dress outfits for Children in Need on Friday 18th November, with people dressing up as members of rock band Kiss and a variety of animals from the Lion King, amongst others.

Nine members of staff also grew moustaches to raise awareness of mens health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. Movember is all about growing a moustache to spark conversations, and generate laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancers affecting men.
