Busways’ pop-up barbershop, team bike ride, and bus decals promote men's health for Movember
This Movember, Busways is raising awareness for men’s health by hosting a Busways pop-up barbershop, supporting an employee fundraising motorcycle ride and placing moustaches on all 1350 buses in its fleet.
The annual Movember charity movement aims to advance research and support programs that help men to live happier, healthier and longer lives.
On Monday 30 October, our team at Ryde bus depot had great fun getting a little pamper at a pop-up Busways Moustachery. Award winning Willoughby barber, Billy Papas from Bill's Barber Shop gave a shave, a beard cut or a trim to help them prepare ‘just right’ to ‘grow a mo’.
“I have been a barber for a very long time, and being able to trim mos for such a good cause and for a great company like Busways, means a lot to me,” said Mr Papas (pictured with drivers below).
“Movember is a great way to get everyone talking about men’s health and getting vital health checks,” said Chris Wolf, Chief Operations Officer. “That’s so important in our male dominated industry where some of our employees find talking about men’s health uncomfortable.”
In Western Sydney, Busways is supporting employees in a social motorcycle club who are joining together for a fundraising ride from Sydney to Melbourne on the first weekend in November.
“We join together to enjoy social motorcycle riding and we do all sorts of charity and fun events, it’s like one big happy family,” says Harinder Singh from Busways Penrith and promoter for Singhs Social Motorcycle Club.
“Movember means a lot to us – on our 'The Mo Bro Ride' we’ll have fun while raising funds to help with Movember programs to improve men’s health,and talking about men's health to help remove the stigma,” Singh said. Asked if he’d be growing a mo also, he smiled and said ‘Of course!”
