Ocean Grove Bowls Club have got behind this year’s Movember campaign.

The Movember initiative is aimed at tackling prostate cancer, testicular cancer, supporting mental health and suicide prevention amongst males and to raise funds throughout November.

Club Grove Bowls coach Matt Flapper said premier division players and lower club member bowlers shaved their moustaches at the end of play on Saturday 30 November for men’s health.

Flapper was hopeful the club would raise around $1000 for Movember.

“A few years ago we did it and I just threw up to the boys again this year to get behind it,” Flapper told the Voice.

“Probably 10 or 12 of the top side and then there’s a few others scattered throughout the club that are doing it just to raise awareness for men’s health.

“There is a bloke Dave McKay (at the club) who has had a ‘Mo’ for 43 years and he was losing it and we are shaving it off.”
