Target: £500
raised £5,494 since 2021
My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer
Testicular cancer
Mental health and suicide prevention

This year to raise money for prostate and testicular cancer, and men’s mental health I will be doing more than just growing a terrible moustache.

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 50. In light of this, myself, Adam Ivins and Rory Thain will each lift 50 tonnes per week for the entirety of November. Resulting in over 200 tonnes being lifted per person.

On top of this, I have set some fundraising milestones:
If £100 is raised I will shave off my mullet. The mullet can be seen pictured on my MoSpace for reference. She has been brewing for well over a year but there is no better cause for her to go for.
If £250 is raised I will bleach the hair I have remaining. And I will test the theory if blondes do have more fun.

Although most of this is just a bit of fun. The cause that we are raising money for is serious. Any donation to this great cause will go so far in helping men that need it the most.

Lastly, my Movember journey will be documented on Instagram. Along with daily tashe updates from myself and the rest of my flat so please feel free to check it out.

50. For men under 50, suicide is the most common form of death. In honour of this myself, Adam Ivins, and Rory Thain will each lift 50 thousand kilograms per week for the whole month of November.
