In the spirit of Movember, Doughheads have launched their MoBro’s doughnut, raising funds and awareness for men’s physical and mental health. The local business is collaborating with the Movember Foundation, donating $1 from each MoBro sold to the organisation.
The MoBro’s movement is the latest partnership in Doughheads monthly charity initiative. Creative director Anna Farthing is using her delicious doughnuts to give back to the community that supports her.
“We all have men in our lives! Personally, I'm raising 3 of them, have 4 brothers and employ 14 male staff at Doughheads. Men's health is an important subject in our community and we are stoked to partner with the Movember Foundation to raise awareness and raise funds during November” said Ms Farthing.
The MoBro doughnut is packed with scrumptious flavours, so supporting the charity is hard to resist. The fluffy doughnut is dipped in espresso icing, crafted using freshly brewed Glee espresso. It is then stuffed with fresh banana, sticky, salted caramel and topped with a dark chocolate moustache. Its oozy, messy and finger lickin’ good.
The Movember Foundation aim to transform the community’s awareness and perspective of men’s Health. They devote research into prostate and testicular cancers and offer support networks for mental health. The organisation encourages its MoBro’s and MoSista’s to grow a moustache, raising awareness and funds for our fathers, brothers, partners and friends. In November 2017 over 5 million moustaches were grown to support the initiative.
The Doughheads lads are helping boost that number by sporting their best moustaches. Head Chef Kallan Bragg sets the bar high, already trimming and styling his moustache into the faithful horseshoe. The workplace challenge not only provides banter in the team, but raises awareness for the cause. Donations can be made on the Doughheads Mo Team page or by purchasing a MoBro doughnut in store. Drop by Doughheads this November, spot some killer Mo’s, devour a mouth-watering doughnut and support a fantastic cause.
