Movember the month formally known as November, will see the Victor Team do their best impressions of Freddie Mercury, Charlie Chaplin and Tom Selleck by 'attempting' to grow beards and moustaches for charity!

We have chosen to support Macmillan Cancer Support due to the ongoing personal circumstances of a member of the team.

The Team: Andre, Ian, Graham, Rich, Ollie and Brian

Why sponsor the Team? One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer, and it's the toughest thing most of us will ever face. Macmillan are the nurses and therapists helping you through treatment. The experts on the end of the phone. The advisers telling you which benefits you're entitled to. The volunteers giving you a hand with the everyday things. The campaigners pushing for better cancer care. The community supporting you, any time. The fundraisers who make it all possible......
All monies raised will be split equally between Macmillan Cancer Support and XL231 for her winter maintenance.
Please support the team and donate now.

We will be adding photos to the blog and twitter to show how the teams efforts progress and will add a graph showing how much has been raised.
Please drop us a line if you would like to join the teams fundraising activities.

Meet the Team!

This is where you will usually find Brian - at the controls of the tug! After serving his time on Vulcan's in the RAF he really is V-Force all the way through. On leaving the RAF Brian rebelled and banished the razor to the back of the cupboard. But 40 years on and a hectic summer of sanding Brian has stepped up to the mark and shaved his beard off - much to the annoyance of his wife!
Brian with beard!

We think Brian looks 10 years younger but Brian is more concerned about his chin getting cold! My 'designer' stubble is coming on and Brian is trying to convience me that a beard isn't just for Movember!
1 week in - Brian clean shaven for 1st time in 40 years!

Rich is going for his 3rd stripe!

Ian trying to give me a run for money on designer stubble!
So one week in and progress is going well. Fundraising has topped £200 but we are not stopping yet please support the team and the great charity Macmillan Cancer Support and make a donation using the link at the top of the page.
Almost 3 weeks down and we are starting to look a motley bunch!
Rich, Ian, Andre and Graham
Fundraising is going well but every penny counts so please donate anything you can spare. We must add that Flt Lt Suckling has failed on his bid for Movember, so will be paying the fine!
Thank you
