How mo can you go?

Support our men's 1st team as they become hairier!!!

Our gallant 1st team men, some more blessed with facial hair growing abilities than others, are fundraising and mo-growing for Movember.

Just in case you've never heard of it, Movember is a month-long charity activity, the aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

And to raise these funds, men all over the world grow (or try to grow!) the finest moustaches they can muster. On 1stNovember, sorry Movember, our men, or ‘Mo Bros’ say goodbye to their clean-shaven top lips and start to grow and groom their way to moustache mastery.

As the organisers of Movember say: “Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.”

The funds raised in the UK support the number one and two male specific cancers - prostate and testicular cancer. The funds raised are directed to programmes run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer ResearchHiAMo.

Hampton1st team men’s captain, Scott Powell, is right behind the cause: “It’s really important that we raise funds to support such crucial work. It’s also a great way for the team to have some fun, and we will be competing to see who can cultivate the biggest and most stylish moustaches!”

You can donate to the team through the Movember website.
