Hairy Goings On At Pictons All In The Name of Charity
The clients of Sukh Saini will be in for a shock in November when the normally pristine and clean shaven Managing Partner of leading regional law firm Pictons turns up looking more hirsute than usual.
Sukh has bravely signed himself up to take part in Movember, the global charity which encourages men to grow a moustache in the month of November to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research.
He says “I expect my young kids will be frightened, my wife will be horrified and my clients will either mock or be shocked. However, it’s a great cause and I’m aiming to raise at least £500 so I’ll encourage everyone to donate. Of course, it’s also a great excuse not to have to shave for a whole month!
Movember’s aim is to change the face of men’s health, metaphorically and literally. As a charity it’s become quite a phenomenon and has certainly got people talking about a male cancer which is treatable, especially if found early.
The rules are straightforward. Participants have to start clean shaven on November 1st and are only allowed to grow a moustache , not a beard, sideburns or a more fashionable goatee.
