MO MONEY, NO PROBLEM!
Sharon Hodgson, Member of Parliament for Washington and Sunderland West, joined staff at Washington Components Ltd in Washington on Friday for a ceremonial shaving session to mark the end of their now annual fundraising drive for men's health charities.

Stylists from Daccs Hair and Beauty Salon in Washington were also on hand to whisk off the whiskers at the end of the month-long drive, which saw staff at the factory, including Managing Director Anthony Sutherland, raise £316.
The money will go to the Movember Foundation, which distributes cash to support men's health causes, and particularly those which aim to tackle prostate and testicular cancer.
Mrs Hodgson, who joined staff at the ceremony, said:
“Movember is always an extremely worthwhile campaign, which raises funds and ever greater awareness about health issues that in the past people simply didn’t talk about."
"There were some fantastic moustaches on display, and it was great to see everybody at Washington Components coming together and taking part."
"I know the money raised will go towards doing really important work, so thank you to all who took part all across our community, and I look forward to seeing even more moustaches next year!”
Anthony Sutherland said:
"We do Movember here every year as it’s a great way to raise money and awareness for such a great cause that is so important to men’s health.”
