I have recently embarked on Movember, an international event aimed at raising the awareness of Men’s health issues through a collective endeavour to bring the Moustache back into fashion (as if it ever went out of fashion).

For the next 30 days I will be joining thousands of men (and no doubt some women) across the globe in trying to acquire a quality ‘Mo’. Those of you who know me will know that I am a beardy sort. If so, you will probably be wondering what kind of a challenge growing a Mo will present to someone who has sported some form of facial fluff since being of folicular growing age. Well, the prerequisite of Movember is starting the month clean shaven. That’s right, Dr Henley has shaved off his entire beard just in time for what will certainly be the coldest November on record.

So if, like me, you believe in raising the awareness of Men’s health issues and can spare a penny or two then why not make a small donation to Movember

All money raised by Movember is donated to The Prostate Cancer Charity who are using the funds to create awareness, fund research, increase support resources and networks for those men who suffer from prostate cancer.

If anyone is interested in monitoring my Mo-progress I will try to remember to stick pics up on flickr
