Raising funds on behalf of The Movember Foundation, Sealite staff are proudly taking part in a number of challenges during the month of November. From sponsored moustache growing, to 60 kilometer runs and moustache biscuit baking, there’s plenty going on!
Since 2003, the Movember Foundation have created a men’s health movement with over 5 million supporters across the world. Through the moustaches grown and the conversations generated, they have helped fund 1,200 innovative men’s health projects across more than 20 countries focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Awareness and fundraising activities are run year-round by the foundation, with the annual Movember campaign in November being globally recognised for its fun, disruptive approach to fundraising and getting men to take action for their health.
No longer limited to only those who can grow a moustache, the Movember challenge has widened it’s scope by creating two additional ways people can get involved and raise money. ‘Mo-ve’ asks volunteers to commit to walking or running 60 kilometers over the month. That’s 60 kilometers for the 60 men the UK loses to suicide each hour. Three members of Sealite UK staff, Alastair Read, Leigh Bundock and Oliver Curtis, have already signed up to take on the 60 kilometer challenge and are hoping their efforts will contribute to the total reached.
Another way to raise funds is to ‘Host’, or “Get your mates together for a Mo-ment.” The Sealite UK office will be having a get together at the end of November where staff have been challenged to bring in moustache shaped food.
With staff members taking part globally at Sealite offices both in the UK and at the company headquarters in Australia, CEO Chris Procter is proud of the company’s contribution so far;
“It’s is wonderful to see so many Sealite staff members getting behind the challenge and have fun whilst raising funds for a charity doing such great work to improve men’s health.”

“[Re: Sealite Wins Duke ™s Choice Award for Java Technology & the Environment “ Sealite GSM monitoring & control system], The team at Motorola were extremely impressed with Sealite’s innovative integration of the G24-Java wireless module in their GSM Monitoring & Alarm System.”
“As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15 ™S) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order with Dana shortly keep up the good work.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.”
