Movember – the result!

30 Nov

Moustache season is nearly over and after 30 days of growing my mo and suffering the consequences, I can now announce that I have raised…

£255!!!

My team, The Hackney Mo’s have raised a total of £520.

All the money raised during Movember goes to help combat protate and other men’s cancers. What’s more you can still donate here http://mobro.co/TheEndIsNi

Here’s a picture of me pulling my best moustache face (it’s slightly picasso-esque)

Movember – 11 days in

11 Nov

 

IT’S already 11 days into Movember, the month in which men around the world grow moustaches to raise money and awareness of prostate cancer and other mens health issues.

Havinging lost my dad to cancer at the end of November last year, I decided to take on the challenge of growing a ‘Mo’, as they call it, to help the effort.

Finding out that my dad had cancer was a shock, though not all together suprising as he had smoked and drank for the majority of his life. However watching the man who brought me up slowly disappear into himself and lose all his ability was tough to say the least and the effect it had on my mother was hard. While as a family we are coping with his loss, it’s not something I would wish on anyone else, so while my efforts may not stop cancer, at least they’re helping in some way.

OK harrowing bit over. So from my usual babyfaced looks, I have managed to transorm into a moustacheod man (I know that isn’t a word… is it?) and have already raised nearly £150 in donations, thanks to a lot of kind people, including a massive £100 donation from @Clarioncomms.

I'm unconvinced on my Mo and have never before realised quite how big my nose is... i't's massive

While I haven’t inherited my dad’s ability to wear and suit a moustache, I am determined to keep it growing until the end of November. Who knows I may even come to like it.

If you are kind and able enough to make a donation, or even if you just want to keep up on my progress and poke fun, please visit my Mo Space here: http://mobro.co/TheEndIsNi

You’ll also be able to see the efforts of the rest of the 34 Kelshall Court Mo Bros as the whole flat is in on the team!

Every little helps and it will all be very much appreciated and don’t forget we’re looking to get mo’ money for no problems.
