FAQ

Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.

At the start of Movember guys sign up with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants, known as Mo Bros, have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their Mo, raising money along the way to benefit men's health.
Funds raised through the Movember UK campaign go to Movember Europe which is a private company limited by guarantee in England and Wales (company no. 7275694) and a registered charity in England and Wales (charity no. 1137948) and in Scotland (charity no. SC041981).

The net funds are committed to programmes supporting prostate cancer and testicular cancer initiatives run by the Movember Foundation and through our men’s health partners Prostate Cancer UK and the Institute of Cancer Research. From 2015, we will also be funding men’s mental health programmes.

Prostate Cancer UK, the Institute of Cancer Research and the Movember Foundation together ensure that funded programmes are world-class and align with our strategic goals.

A network is a group made up of different teams and individuals that could represent a company, organisation, college or school, sporting organization, community group or anything that unites people.

You can be a member of multiple networks, e.g. your work network and/or sports team network. This allows you to contribute to their total amount raised and compare fundraising, whilst still participating on your own or in a team.

While growing a Mo is left to the guys, Mo Sistas (a woman who loves a Mo and wants to support men's health) do a lot of important work for Movember. Mo Sistas can get involved by:
  • Signing Up online, recruiting a team and raising money
  • Organising events i.e. Mo Parties
  • Making a donation to a Mo Bro
  • Supporting and showing love for the Mo
  • Purchasing Movember merchandise
Mo recognition - a smile or nod of recognition for a Mo Bro’s moustache growing and fundraising efforts is always appreciated!
