Movember, the month formerly known as November, is when brave and selfless men around the world grow a moustache and women step up to support them, all to raise awareness and funds for men's health - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.
Movember was established in 2003 by a few friends over a beer in a pub just outside Melbourne, Australia. The goal was to create a campaign promoting the growth of the moustache among like-minded people, and to have fun along the way. It is about real men, talking about real issues and changing the face of men's health. Movember now spans the globe, with campaigns in over 20 countries.
Prostate Cancer UK is the main beneficiary of the Movember campaign. For the last ten years, the amazing efforts of the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from across the UK have significantly contributed to their research initiatives and have supported men by investing in their services.
Our staff dressed up in some interesting television, film and music themed costumes, along with amazing moustaches, to raise money for Movember and have a brilliantly fun day. In total over £100 was raised and some brilliant costumes were worn.
