Moustache of 40 years to go for a Good Cause

Moustache of 40 years to go for a Good Cause

While thousands of men around the country are abandoning their razors and becoming Mo Bro’s to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, this Friday Wellington businessman Les Stone will lose his moustache of 40 years, to raise money for the Kingfisher Wellington Trust.

“I’ve decided to lose my signature facial hair to raise money for a very worthy cause, the Kingfisher Wellington Trust,” Mr Stone said.

The Trust involves parents of a group of eight young adults with intellectual and physical disabilities, who share a vision of a safe, stimulating and caring environment for their children as they enter adulthood.

Les aims to raise $10,000, through 100 donations of $100. So far he’s past the half way mark and is confident of reaching his goal before his 'shave-off', planned for 12 noon, Friday, 19 November.

A recent quiz night fundraiser for the Trust attracted around 350 people and raised over $11,000.

Michael Faherty, the Trust’s chairman said, “We really appreciate Les getting involved with this fundraiser and appeal to his many friends and business associates to help him reach his goal.”

Donations to the Trust can be made at Reception, Bogacki Property Consultants, Ground Floor, Queens Wharf Offices, 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington, or paid into the Kingfisher Wellington Trust bank account at Kiwibank, Account No: 389006 0115045 00
