Meet Plantman's accountant Jeff Thornhill, the man behind the handlebar moustache that turned heads and sparked conversations throughout Movember. 

Growing More than a Moustache

Movember is more than just an excuse to grow facial hair; it's a global movement raising awareness about men's health issues, from prostate cancer to mental health. The usually clean shaven Jeff Thornhill, a familiar face in our admin team, took on the challenge like a champ.

The 'Stache That Started Conversations

His bold choice from clean shaven to handlebar hero sparked discussions about men's health, encouraging our workplace to prioritise well-being. It opened the door for discussions about regular health check-ups, mental well-being, and the importance of supporting each other through life's challenges.

Fundraising Efforts

Jeff didn't stop at growing a statement moustache. He actively engaged our team and wider community in his fundraising efforts. Through creative initiatives like delicious Plantman Mo themed cupcakes for the team and leveraging social media, he rallied support for Movember, turning his facial hair into a powerful force for good.

Thank You for the Support

As Jeff bids farewell to his enviable 'stache at the end of Movember, we extend our gratitude to everyone who supported him in this journey. The funds raised contribute to vital research and programs that address the health challenges faced by men globally.
