This November, leading men’s health organisation, Movember, returns as it takes over the UK’s most favoured sights with a series of temporary installations to mark the start of its month-long campaign. Now in its 19th year, the charity is calling on Mo Bros around the UK to band together to bravely sacrifice their upper lips in support of men’s mental health, suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer.

The takeover sees popular attractions such as the home of British Grand Prix motorsport, Silverstone, Scotland based, Heriot-Watt and Strathclyde Universities, and statues across the capital rocking a distinctive moustache, helping to inspire people far and wide to get involved with this year’s campaign. By signing up, raising funds, and encouraging men to talk more openly about their health, we can break through the stigmas and stop men from dying too young.

Movember’s Country Director for UK and Europe, Anne-Cecile Berthier, said: We are truly honoured to receive such great support in the lead up to campaign and to have so many industry-leading names eager to take part and help us spread awareness for men’s health.

Men’s health is particularly important to those in the motorsport industry and in full-time education. To have Silverstone, Heriot-Watt and Strathclyde onboard this year really does help to amplify our message and to spread awareness of the bigger picture – men are dying too young and we really need more people to hear our message”.

In the UK, 3 out of 4 suicides are by men. 1 in 8 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and testicular cancer continues to be the most diagnosed cancer in young men.

To date, Movember has welcomed six million supporters and helped fund 1,250 innovative health projects across 20 countries. But we’re not done yet.


  • Be prepared: Choose the moustache that will grace your face by browsing the inspirational Movember Mo Style Guide. But embrace the moustache that nature gives you, because whatever you grow will save a bro. 
  • Be brave: The first few days, even weeks, can be uncomfortable as your Mo takes shape. Ride it out to encourage donations.
  • Ignore the itching: Remind yourself that men have endured worse in the past. You can stand a little face tickle. 
  • Shape your moustache: Get across all the proper grooming techniques. A great Mo comes down to great grooming. 
  • Nurture it and keep it clean: Look after your Mo, and your Mo will look after you.


  • Move for Movember- Commit to running or walking 60kms over the month. That’s 60kms for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world. You can join a team or run solo.
  • Host a Mo-ment- Rally a crew and do something fun. Hosting is all about having a good time for a good cause.And you can always put a virtual spin on your plans. The best part? Virtual events are easy to organise, cheap to run and you can go in your slippers. Think an online gaming tournament, Mo Bingo or a virtual trivia night.
  • Mo Your Own Way- A choose-your-own-adventure challenge, epic in scope and scale. You make the rules. You set the limits and chase them down. Take a hike, run a relay, ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats. Get creative, push your limits and inspire donations with sheer grit.
