Sean Kelly, who works in the groundworks team at UK Power Networks, has called on colleagues to help him raise £1,000 for a cause close to his heart.

Sean, who helps to keep electricity supplies flowing to local homes, businesses, schools and hospitals, said: “Prostate cancer contributed to the passing of my uncle, Brian Kelly earlier this year, my father is also diagnosed with prostate cancer and I have colleagues living with prostate cancer. I wanted to do my bit by raising awareness and raising money for this great charity.

“To help raise the money I’ve grown a fabulous Tom Selleck moustache and I’m aiming to complete 100km of exercise this month by either running or walking. At the halfway point I’m nearly halfway towards reaching my goal. I want to raise as much money as possible this Movember to help stop men dying young and I’m asking people to get behind my fundraising for all the dads, brothers, sons and mates in their lives.”

Sean, who plays for Peche Hill Select Football Club in Hastings, has clubbed together with his teammates to raise a total of £1,000 for Movember and so far they have raised over £680. Sean’s fundraising page is here: https://movember.com/m/14111918?mc=1 

Globally, men are dying six years earlier than women, for largely preventable reasons. Movember is an annual fundraiser that prompts men to take action for their health and funds health projects to tackle prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide prevention.
