Last year, November saw my son’s christening, Microsoft’s Innovative Education Forum and a number of other events. At each one, I was sporting a moustache grown in support of Movember. See my progress last year here:
The Movember Effect: Awareness & Education, Survivorship, Research
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 programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer Research. Together, these channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.
For more information on the programmes we are funding please visit the following:

I will be starting November 1st with a clean top lip and rasing the money. As I am a practicing teacher, there are boundless opportunbities for embarrasement as I’ll bve going for something truly special this year.
I will also be part of a team of geographers.
Thank you to my wife for giving me the important permission.
