The firefighters from Northfield Fire Station (Green Watch) are taking part in this year’s Movember to help raise funds and awareness for men’s mental health.

On average a male commits suicide every single minute of the day, somewhere in the world and three out of four suicides are men. With these shocking statistics it is easy to see why our local firefighters are stepping up and doing their bit.

Each and everyone of them are well aware that they will never be able to wear a moustache as well as Tom Selleck, but regardless, they have wrestled their egos out of the station this month and are doing this.

The Movember Foundation is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030, you can help achieve this.

Team Captain Annette Carrington (who isn’t growing a moustache) said: “Green Watch at Northfield Fire Station are pulling all the stops and putting their personal appearance aside.

“Please donate generously as every little penny makes a difference.”

Please DONATE HERE and show your support and help make a difference.
