Apex club taking part in Movember

CHILDERS Apex Club members will sacrifice their love lives to help a good cause this month, with many signing on for Movember.

Matt Kingston is one member willing to grow a moustache in the name of a good cause and to raise funds as part of the campaign, much to partner Amy Pamenter’s discontent.

While he is sporting a luxuriant growth after just four days, Ms Pamenter is wearing a scowl – but she accepts the money raised will be a vital contribution to Beyond Blue and prostate cancer research.

“I can’t stand him with a moustache,” Ms Pamenter said.

“And I’m not the only wife or partner in the club who will be making the sacrifice along with the boys.”

Mr Kingston was undeterred, saying his effort was “all in the name of fun and two good causes”.

All moustaches will be removed in a “shave-off” outside the Childers First National office, Churchill Street, on Saturday, November 27.

“That day can’t come fast enough,” Ms Pamenter said.

Donations towards the Childers effort can be made by going to and following the prompts to find Childers.

Other local groups involved include the Bundaberg Police Station and Bundaberg Sugar.

People can also donate to other local groups on the website.

Those interested also can find more information about the event and the causes it supports on the website.
