Thousands of staff are being encouraged to back a charity campaign.

Cobalt Business Park is among those backing Movember, which encourages men to grow moustaches to raise awareness and funds for men’s health this month.

Ahead of the start on November 1, Spud & Lettuce at Cobalt Central was transformed into a pop-up barbershop with Chris Moon, The Geordie Barber.

Amy Carroll, events and communications manager at Cobalt Business Park, said “We are delighted to be supporting Movember again, this has been a really exciting year for Cobalt with hundreds of new staff joining the park, and they have fully embraced the sense of community we have here.”

Chris added: “We were delighted to be able to support Movember again and wanted to offer our wet shave expertise to the masses at Cobalt.”

Spud & Lettuce, who provide a choice of healthy fresh fast food to their customers, are also supporting Movember by offering special Mo Menus.

Staff can try their special Meaty Mo with BBQ pulled Pro, Cheese and Jalapeños this Movember with 45p from each wrap sold going to the Movember foundation.

Simon Gould, owner, said: “Promoting good health is something we are passionate about, however some things are often out of our control.

“Being able to support this brilliant cause, both through the team becoming Mo Bros and allowing shop space to be used for the essential shavedown, is great.”
