Thomas, Tammy and Timon Muir grew mos for the month of Movember to raise money for prostate cancer and mental health.

The Mochester Gala on Friday was a huge success with the Mochester team raising a total of $10,000 throughout November and at the gala event.

Organiser Amanda Logie said the money raised would go to cancer and male mental health research.

‘‘Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer and mental health I’m sure $10,000 will be a huge benefit to the cause,’’ she said.

Ms Logie praised the support of local businesses with the event.

‘‘I really hope the community realise just how important they are and to please support them because they do support us,’’ she said.

The Rochy Mo Growers Association was another Rochester team that raised almost $5000 for the cause.
