The Sharnbrook Hotel is believed to be the top fundraiser from the ‘Movember’ charity campaign last month, raising £13,000 for men’s health.

The north Bedfordshire venue was the 24th most successful fundraiser out of more than 31,000 teams taking part in the The Movember Foundation initiative, with staff from the business being sponsored to grow their facial fur for one month.

The hotel also held a fundraising ball on Saturday night (December 1), featuring a raffle, auction and live music.

Movember takes place across the world every year, raising awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities.

Sharnbrook Hotel general manager Ciro Ciampi said: “We had 49 members of the team registered online whilst others were in our team but not registered, with staff, friends and business associates taking part.”
