The Upper Lachlan Shire Council has applauded two of its employees for their initiative to raise funds for Mens Health issues through the Movember Foundation.

 

Senior Waste Operator, Steve Trickett had been growing his beard for more than a year and in the process conducting weekly pub raffles.

 

The beard has now come off.

 

He and partner, Susie Pearman who works in council's administration section, set out to raise $5,000 for the Movember Foundation, but instead have raised more than $15,000.

 

Council General manager, John Bell has congratulated the pair, saying their efforts have produced a wonderful result.
