A number of the Boyce team (of the male variety) raised more than $1,600 for men’s health during Movember, as well as sporting some rather impressive moustaches by month end.
Each year Movember is responsible for the emergence of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in Australia and around the world, with the sole aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.
Men sporting Movember moustaches, known as Mo Bros, became walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raised awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

World-renowned neurosurgeon, Dr Charlie Teo congratulated Boyce Chartered Accountants for their efforts in raising almost $30,000 for brain cancer research.
For the past two years, Boyce has used one of Australia’s most well-known events, the annual City to Surf race, to raise funds to support the Cure For Life Foundation.
The Foundation was established by Dr Teo in response to the increasing incidence of brain tumours and the lack of research being conducted into the disease in Australia.
“The City to Surf is an amazing event and provides participants like the team from Boyce Chartered Accountants with a significant challenge”, said Dr Teo.
