GETTING IT GROWN
SUPPORT THE CASTLE ROCK MO BROS, SUPPORT THE MOVEMBER FOUNDATION
Last year our Movember participants raised over £1,907.50; this year we’ve set our goal at £3,000. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be building up our Movember team. You can view and support our Mo Bros and Sistas here: http://uk.movember.com/team/1525877
Castle Rock is showing international support for men’s health, by raising awareness and funding for a unique charity. The Movember Foundation is a leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health, tackling illnesses like testicular cancer, prostate cancer, and mental health issues. In support of this unique and vital charity, moustaches are grown on the faces of thousands of men across the globe.
Castle Rock Brewery has been fundraising for Movember since 2012. Every November we brew a charity beer called ‘Walrus’, which is back by popular demand this year. Walrus goes out to pubs in Nottingham and beyond and, with every pint sold, a 20p donation is made to Movember. In addition, a further 50p from any dishes cooked with Walrus goes to Movember.
This year Castle Rock has formed a collaborative team where employees from head office, the brewery and the pub estate can sign up to Movember. Many of us at Castle Rock are in regular contact with customers, clients and members of the public, so the growth of a Mo is a talking point, and from there awareness is raised and donations are made.
Our pubs will also be getting involved, with specially created Movember dishes, prizes for the best customer moustache, and shave-off events with live music.
