Why Movember? A few years ago, Nick got a call from his old man. In typical Kiwi fashion it went like this… ‘Yeah. So. I have this prostate cancer. But don’t worry. I’ll be fine.’ Thank god his Mum had been on his Dad’s back to keep on top of his check-ups.
Stories like this are why we work with the Movember Foundation. Solely because the funds raised tonight mean that men all around the world will live happier, healthier, longer lives. Movember challenge men to grow moustaches during the month of November, to spark conversation and raise vital funds for men’s health. Since 2003, they’ve raised over £400 million, funding into 1000 programmes across 21 countries, focused on the areas of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, physical inactivity and poor mental health.
At the end of the day, having a dram with your old man who survived a scare like that is much better than having a dram to remember him. So, Movember – we raise our glasses to you. Thank you for all your hard work, looking after old and young fellas everywhere.
