Movember is the time for the Mo Bros and Mo Sisters to shine and we here at Bar-Be-Quick want to tell you all about it…
What is Movember?
From humble beginnings, the Movember movement has grown into a global annual event and supporting charity.
Movember are the leading charity in changing the face of men’s health, they know what works for men – and what doesn’t!
With the money raised, they fund ground-breaking health projects across men’s mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer – 1,250 projects so far.
They understand the importance of breaking the silence on these topics and providing support for those that need it most.
The charity’s main (and most well-known) event takes place annually during the month of November and involves participants growing a moustache to help raise funds and awareness.
In addition to the main event the charity also organise a number of other events for people to take part in during the year.
What is their aim?
The aim of the Movember charity is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by 2030.
Who can take part?
