My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health

I'd planned a low-key involvement in Movember this year. That all changed when, in the middle of October, someone I'd worked with for 20 months - and come to regard as a friend - died 5 weeks after going into hospital. He was 64.

So sad. Kenneth had been diagnosed with a brain tumour when his left leg stopped working. That was two months after he'd first complained about a lump near his armpit - it took me that long to persuade him to see his GP.

The medical care was great when he got it, but who knows how things might have turned out if he'd not delayed those two months. Growing a mo is one way I can start conversations about the Kenneth I knew for too short a time.

Let's keep men healthier and happier for longer - we can't do it alone; talking is the start.

Thanks so much to you all (I'm sorry I couldn't thank some donors personally) for your support - made all the effort (not much really!) worthwhile. My top lip is now as smooth as a (rough) baby's bottom. Here's hoping for a healthier 12 months for us all.

So many thanks to everyone for your support for my Movember 2020 effort. Men's health matters 365 days a year not just for one month and your generosity makes sure the work goes on. Here's a look at my Day 30 mo - the Swiss Army Penknife - before it gets the chop.

Wow- my £500 fundraising target is in sight - might have to increase it... but will reflect on it between now and the weekend

I hope you'll agree that my Day 10 mo is coming along well. Your support in helping stop men dying too young is appreciated.

My wife has kindly kicked off the donations with, she says, '£20 for 2020'. That's also £10 for each of my 2 moustaches - the horizontal handlebar and the plunging Jason King style vertical effort. Stand by for first photos of my toplip topiary on Day 10.

Note: As donations can be made privately, not all donations are displayed to the public.
