Movember is an annual, month-long celebration of the moustache. It highlights men’s health issues, in particular prostate cancer.
On November 1st Mo Bros get smoothly clean-shaven, and then grow and groom their moustache over the course of the month. Each Mo Bro becomes a walking billboard for men’s health and raises money for The Prostate Cancer Charity. At the end of Movember, a series of Gala Parties are held to thank Mo Bros (and their supporting Mo Sistas) for their fund-raising efforts. To date, Movember has raised over £30 million for the fight against prostate cancer and depression in men.
Last year over 173,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas got on board. And now it’s your chance to get involved as Movember hits Birmingham. For those keen to get grooming, our local venue is The Victoria in Birmingham. It will be hosting the initial shave-off on the 1st, a mid-month event on the 15th and the celebratory gala on the 30th.
