Grafton's GJ Gardner employees raise Mo' money

THE team at GJ Grafton have raised more than $650 for the Movember movement, contributing to the total $100,000 raised by GJ Gardner Homes franchises across Australia.

As part of the biggest corporate team ever to support the fundraising event, franchise owner Micah Middelbosch said their contribution would support the Movember Foundation's goal of reducing the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by the year 2030.

"We had amazing support from the local community, who generously donated to help with our fundraising effort," he said.

"Men's health is a serious problem and I'm sure the money we raised as part of the total $100,000 fundraising effort will help save lives."

Mr Middelbosch said the whole team got into the spirit of the event to support this great cause.

"Some guys had never grown a 'mo' before, the only problem is at the end of Movember some of them didn't want to shave it off, which was a bit of a concern for their partners," he laughed. 

"At least we know it means they will be happy to be a part of the Movember movement again next year!"
