movember stache 2

Being November, the charity campaign based around funky facial hair is back! Movember has returned once again and is encouraging men to grow a movember stache 2moustache for charity. In support of male specific cancers such as prostate and testicular cancer, men are encouraged to grow the biggest and baddest moustaches they can to raise money for these important causes.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer found in males in the UK. Unlike female specific cancer problems, the levels of awareness and prevention of prostate cancer are lagging far behind. Over 40,000 men every year are diagnosed with the disease and estimations suggest that by 2030 it will be the most common form of all cancers.

Action needs to be taken to help stamp out this serious men’s health issue. That is what Movember aims to do in a month long campaign to grow amazing moustaches in support of these serious issues. The objective is to shave at the start of the month and see what sort of lip hair you can come up with by the end of November. The more interesting choice of moustache the better!

We here at Consett Magazine would love to see your moustaches this November so don’t hesitate and send them to us at or via our Facebook page. We will be sharing the best of them through our Facebook and twitter pages.
