Here come the boys – Movember Is GO at Ginetta HQ

Here come the boys – Movember Is GO at Ginetta HQ

The Ginetta boys never shy away from a challenge (or confectionery-based bribery) so when we brought all our leftover ‘Trick or Treat’ goodies into Head Office this morning, convincing them to join our Movember efforts was as simple as taking candy from a baby.

Self-appointed Ginetta ‘mum’ Ruth Gawthorpe rallied the troops in the workshop and although most of them already have some facial hair, no fewer than eight Ginetta superstars have committed not to shave or trim their beards again until December 1st. Nik Gawthorpe, Sam Stanton, John Stanton, Mark Webber, Sam Williams, Geoff Falconar, Sam Dolby and Ayrton Todd – we salute you!

You don’t have to grow the mo to save a bro though. There are plenty of people taking part in the ‘Move For Movember’ efforts. LNT Group CEO Matt Lowe, LNT Software MD Leigh Ellis and LNT Construction Planning Manager Jo Sutcliffe are each taking part in a 1958 challenge, in celebration of the year Ginetta was founded.

Not only that, but we have real-life radio and telly SUPERSTAR Andy Jaye on the cusp of joining our team, we reckon a bit of a beard and he’ll look just like a young Gandalf – who wouldn’t want that to their name?

Leigh Ellis, Director of LNT Software.

I'll get the ball rolling (no pun intended) as part of the LNT Group efforts. I’ve previously grown the facial fuzz, but this year I’m going to be a part of the Move for Movember campaign.

Considering I haven't been in the gym for about a year, it’s about time I got myself back in the game. With that in mind, I’m signing myself up for a 1958 challenge to celebrate the year Ginetta was founded, and will do 1,958 push ups in November! Watch this space.

 

Matt Lowe, LNT Group CEO.

Bringing the fight to Ellis is our group CEO Matt Lowe. He’s never one to shy away from a challenge and gets involved in every single one of the Group’s fundraising activities. The Group motivator has put his money where his mouth is this Movember and has pledged to ascend 1,958m on his bike. That is the equivalent of climbing Scafell Pike twice!

He said of his efforts; “ I’ll be burning lots of calories so, as usual, all confectionary donations also gratefully received...” – standard Lowe.

 

Ruth Harrison, Ginetta PR & Marketing Executive

My father recently overcame prostate cancer, so to raise money for Movember, I’ve roped in my BFF Lo Parsons to launch ‘Operation Dash In A Tash’.

Together, we have set a benchmark time for how long it takes us to run 800m and will be training throughout November to improve our fitness levels before we try to beat our benchmarks LIVE on Talk Radio with our celebrity bezzi M, Andy Jaye.
