John N Dunn Group employees get 'tached for Movember

25 John N Dunn Group employees have decided to support Movember by being sponsored to grow 'taches for the month of November.  During Movember thousands of people across the globe sprout moustaches in order to raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

 John N Dunn Group employees have so far had great fun developing their 'taches, taking pictures and raising funds, with a total of £378 having been raised so far and team Yorkshire way out in front in raising donations.

We are in total admiration of those who dedicate themselves to the cause, some have bared their face to the world for the first time in decades, others face threats of divorce and other struggle to be able to develop anything that looks like a 'tache! Massive thanks and support go to:

Team North East - Ben Wilcox, Scott Burlinson, Chris Swalwell, Stephen Bilclough, Dan Miller and Andrew Watson.

Team Scotland - David Dempsey, David Colquhoun and Neil Patterson.

Team Yorkshire - Mike Simpson, Colin Flynn, Dan Taylor, James Flynn, Dave Bryan, Danny Martin, Roger Goldthorpe, James Harris, Dean Shaw, Neil Thwaites, Michael Stilwell, Darren Hughes, Dave Banks, Jonnie Pinder and Kenny O'Donnell.

John N Dunn Group attend the National Trust Event to raise awareness of traditional and sustainable technologies.

We were delighted to be invited to attend and have a trade stand at the National Trust, Fountains Abbey Site.  The event was held to raise awareness of traditional and sustainable technologies that with the correct consents can be integrated into historic and vernacular buildings to improve carbon footprints and reduce energy costs.  The event was run by the  National Trust and Princes Foundation for Built Heritage.
