Members of the Card Saver team have today braved the shave in aid of Movember to raise awareness of men’s health issues, as well as sponsorship for men’s health charities.
Ross, Alex, Ben and Kurtis will all be growing moustaches during the month of November and competing against each other to see who can raise the most sponsorship for the charity.
Now in its 16th year, Movember is a major annual event all over the world involving the growing of moustaches to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide. Last year five million people took part, and this year it’s set to be even more.
Ross Chapman, Card Saver’s Business Development Director, is taking part in the challenge for the second year running.
“This is a simple way of raising awareness and sponsorship for a really good cause,” said Ross. “Last year I raised almost £700 for men’s health charities, and this year I’m aiming to raise even more.”
“Our dads, brothers, sons and mates are facing this health crisis, and without people talking about it and taking action, nothing will change.”
