We are raising money and awareness, with a men's health stall and moustache-growing contest

Every year, men around the world stop shaving their upper lip and ‘grow a mo’ for Movember, raising money for men’s health causes. This year the University is holding an official Facial Hair Competition, with prizes for the best moustaches. Money raised will be distributed by the Movember Foundation to projects addressing the issues of prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health.

On 1 November there will be a Men’s Health Stall on campus (10.00am-2.00pm in Events Square) with information on men’s health as well as freebies such as badges and beermats. There will also be warm water, foam and razors for anyone who wants a final shave before starting their mo. Plus some gingerbread men and icing to create edible mo designs.

Competing moustaches will be paraded and judged at a special event on Friday 30 November. There will be prizes for ‘Best student moustache’, ‘Best staff moustache’ and ‘Most sponsorship money raised’ plus a special prize for ‘Best fake facial hair’ which anyone can enter.

You can sign up for Movember and join ‘Team UoL’ here.
