A morning tea to end all morning teas turned the EPA Division conference room into a huge cake parlour for Movember today.
The event celebrated the efforts of a group of mo-growing diehards from the EPA who have been "rattling the tin" in the Lands Building for the past month to raise awareness in and funds for prostate cancer research and the Beyond Blue campaign.
Entrance to the mid-morning feast was guarded by the heavily-hirsute brothers in arms, Greg Cowen and Rob Prestedge, decked out in black leather and movie star sunglasses. They complemented their outfits with interrogators’ surgical gloves just in case a full body search of recalcitrant donors was necessary.
Fortunately, they had little trouble extracting money from eager morning tea patrons who happily complied with the "the money or the glove" warning.
As well as attracting many sponsors for their mo-growing efforts on the official Movember website, the team’s morning tea was an outstanding fundraiser.
The cake fest was capped off by the auction of glorious flowers which were sold and then resold raising a further !
The EPA Movember team consisted of: Greg Cowen, Rob Prestedge, Jamie Clarke, Adam Beeson, Gary Brown, Mike Power, John Langenberg, Rob Rolfe, Tui Aualiitia and Mal Budd.
Congratulations lads. All you have to do now is count the contributions!
