Marshall employees collect a hair-raising £10,000 for Movember


Once again employees from Marshall of Cambridge have been sporting luxuriant growths of hair on their faces to support the Movember Campaign and, this year, have raised £10,000, bringing the total raised over the past four years by employees within the Group of Companies to over £33,500.

One hundred and twenty nine employees took part this year from all parts of the Company, including Marshall Aerospace & Defence Group at Cambridge and at Chester, as well as from Canada and The Netherlands.  Members of the Marshall Motor Group from around the country also took part. 

Terry Holloway, Group Support Executive from the Marshall Group of Companies, said, ‘It really was a magnificent effort by our employees to raise such a fantastic amount of money for this important charity, which is directed towards Prostate Cancer Research.’

The judging of a competition to recognise the best efforts was completed by Steve Fitz-Gerald, Chief Executive Officer of Marshall Aerospace & Defence Group and Terry Holloway.  Steve Fitz-Gerald said: ‘There were some remarkable entries in this year’s competition and we were delighted that such a large number of our employees took part, including one of our Hawker Jets, which sported a very bushy moustache at Chester!’
