Dec 13 - British Forces Gibraltar Raise £765 For Movember Foundation

British Forces Gibraltar supported Movember last month. All contestants were encouraged to sign up with the Princess Royal Medical Centre (PRMC), post pictures of their shaven faces on day one and raise sponsorship money.

This year’s event raised £765 for the Movember Foundation.  

A spokesperson said: "The event concluded with judging day on 30 November and contestants competed in five categories. The guest judges were Mrs Victoria Henry (Mrs CBF) and the Station Commander Wing Commander John Kane.

"A special thank you to Sgt Rich Elliott who, for the second year running, was the lead fundraiser, raising a whopping £305 and still rising, achieving his goal to top the amount he raised last year.


Categories and winners in this year’s event were:

- Best Gentleman's Moustache

Cpl Arnold Ortlepp - this moustache has been lovingly grown and clearly talked to daily, it oozes class and charisma and wouldn’t look out of place on Royalty.

- The Manliest Moustache

CSgt Kevin Bloor - all other moustaches did not compare to this powerful moustache and it is often seen pumping iron in the gym.
