You may have noticed that every November a strange, hairy phenomenon seems to take place beneath the noses of men in the UK. While you have perhaps mistaken it for some disastrous fashion epidemic or misguided attempt to keep our top lips warm, in actual fact it’s part of a popular men’s health awareness initiative known as Movember. Basically, what happens is that men get sponsored to grow a moustache for a month and the money raised goes towards battling male diseases such as prostate cancer, as well as raising awareness of men’s health issues.
As the only full-time male member of staff in the Medical Library, I decided that this year I would get involved. If you would like to donate some money towards my attempt to emulate the undisputed champion of the moustache Burt Reynolds then you can find my personal Movember page here:
