Movember –Changing the Face of Men’s Health
During November each year, thousands of men in the UK, and around the world, sprout moustaches, the aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At Pin Digital we never shy away when it comes to raising money for charity, only earlier this year we were cycling the distance from Tamworth to London in fancy dress in aid of Marie Curie. This year will be the second year in a row in which we have grown some top lip topiary in the name of Movember, and it has seen the number of staff members that take part increase. In fact we even managed to pressure our MD into getting involved.

If you would like to support this worthwhile cause then any donations would be greatly appreciated, no matter how large or small. Remember, when it comes to charity, every penny counts. If you would like to donate to our team, or an individual member, please visit our Movember page http://uk.movember.com/team/679157.
We will be updating this page in the coming weeks with new photos to show the growth progression and tracking who has been received the most donations.
This year we will also have our own team of Mo Sistas. Mo Sistas traditionally support the Mo Bros through their moustache growing journey however we think one of two of them may be sprouting a moustache of their own by the end of the month!

Week 2 update:
So we have battled through the first week, and arguably the hardest part of Movember, when the moustache starts to itch and go through a very bad and somewhat patchy phase. The temptation can get too much for some and shaving seems the only relief. The looks you get in public become either a subtle nod from someone else taking part, or the worse kind, the look of horror from the little old lady at the post office. Whatever the story though, we are all pushing on now we are around half way through.
At the moment the total money raised as a team stands at £135. However it isn't enough. We need more money from you guys! If you can spare some change, please visit our Movember page http://uk.movember.com/team/679157.
