No, that’s not a furry animal on Simon’s top lip, it’s his attempt at Movember

If you’ve been to see us in the last few weeks you may have noticed that our owner and head dentist Simon has been growing a rather gentlemanly moustache. Don’t worry though, he’s not trying out a new look, he’s raising money for a great cause.

Movember is a nationally recognised event whereby men (who can) grow moustaches throughout November to raise awareness for male cancers as well as physical and mental health conditions.

Thanks to the popularity of the Movember foundation – there have been impressive, creative and downright terrifying results over the years – the charity (which was first established in 2003) has gone on to raise over £402 million which has been spent helping men live healthier, happier and most importantly, longer lives.

With just under one week left, Simon has raised nearly £200 from generous donations by our patients, family and friends. We’re all really proud of him and would like to wish him luck with his last week of growth. We then hope he has a good shave and never attempts this again. Well, until next year!

If you would like to donate to Simon’s Movember collection pot, please speak with a member of our friendly team, or visit his donation page at
