Grow a Mo this Movember

Men’s health is certainly something that has been in the news more and more over the past few years. And in a bid to raise awareness even further, and get people involved with something fun at the same time, gentlemen across the UK have been challenged to grow a moustache in aid of Movember.

This idea was the brainchild of a few guys in Australia back in 2003 to do something positive in the name of men’s health and to bring back the long-forgotten moustache. The plan seems to have worked as now, seven years on it is going from strength to strength with more and more people across the world getting on board every year in raising money for prostate cancer charities.

The premise is quite simple: grow a Mo (slang for moustache) together with a group of guys every November and raise money for cancers that are affecting men.

There is still time to join in with this excellent way of changing the approach to men’s health by changing your appearance. You just need to begin the 1st of November clean-shaven and use the rest of the month to grow a Mo, all in aid of charity. After all, as the Foundation’s slogan reads: “Every man deserves a little bit of luxury.”

Movember is a commitment that you can get your mates (or Mo Bros) to join in with too over the 30 days, so you won’t be alone in bringing the tache back into fashion. After this time you can go back to your usual immaculate wet shaving routine if you like, resting in the knowledge you have done your bit for the promotion of men’s health issues and had a laugh at the same time.

Bedford Blues rugby star Sacha Harding, the face of leading shaving brand The Bluebeards Revenge, is an official ambassador for Movember.

“It’s that time of year again where I grow a big thick hairy Mo to help raise awareness and funds to help fight prostate cancer,” said Sacha, officially Britain’s manliest man.

“My aim is to raise £10,000 this year and with the help of my team-mates and supporters at Bedford Blues and Bluebeards all over the world, I really think I can meet this target.”
