Looking silly & raising awareness during Movember!!

Unfortunately we all know someone who has been or is currently affected with Mental Health issues, Prostate or Testicular cancer and with this in mind myself, Steve and James (Joined here by our MoSister Carla) decided we should play our part in raising awareness of Mens health needs by growing a Moustache for Movember and all being well creating conversation by looking silly!!. 

None of us have ever grown facial hair before (and probably never will again!) so this is an experience in itself - my main worry is itching so any tips would be welcome. 

The Movember Foundation' aim is to help prevent Men dying at a young age and do this by funding innovative research and treatment, did you know that 3/4 of all suicides are Men? The Movember Foundation aim to reduce Male Suicide rates by 25% by 2030, but we can all play our part by talking to and engaging with our friends and family, make sure that you make yourselves available to listen.

Please can you also help to raise awareness of what Men should do with regards to Prostate Cancer and Testicular Cancer have a read of the information on the links and share with friends and family. 

James, Steve and I would love it if you would support our target of raising a minimum of £300 towards the Movember fund and donations can be made here  Sponsor the HSC Jobs Team and you can read more about the Movember Foundation here Movember

We have vowed that if we shave our Moustache off before the end of the month there will be severe penalties........... but dont worry we are all too proud to cave in!! keep an eye out for our updates and see how our impressive (LOL) facial hair progresses along with our fundraising.
