Breast cancer charities have October as their official awareness and fund raising month and now November is the month to raise money and awareness for male specific cancers.
Movember was conceived in 1999 by a group of men in Australia and Movember officially came to the UK in 2007. The concept is, grow a moustache or “mo” during November and ask people to sponsor you, the first week is always the funniest as you see all the mo’s appearing.
If you want to support Movember, a certain Mr Jones in our London office is having a go at a mo, his Just Giving page is here, please sponsor what you can. See the picture below on how his mo looks after the first week.
Thankfully, as a woman I cannot grow a moustache, a few whiskers maybe! But at Insurancewith we still do our bit for charity and donate £1 from every medical and cancer travel insurance policy to one of our nominated charities.
