Movember


One of the er... upsides to working in a client's offices with lots of people is participating in their crazy schemes.

So, during Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Mo. I'm doing this, it says here, because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against prostate cancer - the most common cancer in men in the UK.

But I'm really doing it for the cringing sense of embarrassment the new Mo grower gets from watching the eyes of the person he's speaking to being drawn irresistibly to the mangy spider materialising on his upper lip. And from feeling the inevitable question grow throughout the conversation until his victim is obliged to enquire, "What the hell is that?" Or worse.

You can donate to my Mo by clicking here and using your credit card, or by writing a cheque payable to ‘The Prostate Cancer Charity Re: Movember', referencing my Registration Number 1586826 and mailing it to:
The Prostate Cancer Charity
First Floor Cambridge House
100 Cambridge Grove
Hammersmith
London W6 OLE
The money raised by Movember is used to raise awareness of men's health issues and donated to The Prostate Cancer Charity which will have an enormous impact on many men's lives and the awareness will help us to fight prostate cancer on every front - through research, support, information and campaigning.

Did you know...
  • Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. 35,000 men are diagnosed every year and one man dies every hour.
  • 1 in 11 UK men will be diagnosed in their lifetime.
For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had.
