John’s not given up shaving- it’s Movember!

This month is Movember- the month formally known as November!

Every November 1st, hundreds of thousands of clean shaven chaps sign up to grow a moustache to raise awareness of male health issues, and specifically prostate cancer.

This year I’ve signed up too; never having had a moustache (but having plenty of good ginger Celtic ancestry) I’m looking forward to seeing the results! I have to say that Angela has a very different opinion about the attempt…

I’ll keep you posted on how it’s all going so you can have a chuckle at my frankly amateur attempts at facial hair grooming. My upper lip was shaved for the last time last night and won’t have the attentions of a razor until December.

The main aim is to become a walking billboard for male health issues, but you can also donate here:

Having had a close relative recover from prostate cancer as a direct result of the efforts of medical staff and clinical researchers, I’m proud to support this cause – even if I do start to look like a bit of a wally!
