“Movember” at Norsewear – All for a Good Cause

Iconic New Zealand manufacturer Norsewear is supporting a moustache growing charity event to raise money for men’s health in New Zealand, says Chief Executive Robert Linterman.

“It’s officially ‘Movember’ at Norsewear and I’m doing my best to lead the way. All our male staff are growing and grooming their moustaches from scratch. They are being well supported by our female staff members,” says Mr Linterman.

“Norsewear is pledging a dollar a day for every staff moustache this month with the funds raised going to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand,” he says.

“New Zealand men have supported Norsewear products for many years. This is our way of showing some support for them by raising money and awareness for men’s health issues,” says Mr Linterman.

“Approaching the half way mark I can tell you that the mo is getting mighty itchy but it is all for a good cause. I’m proud that the Norsewear men have accepted the challenge to change the face of men’s health,” he says.
