Teaming up with Howdens to change the face of men’s health this Movember.

2 minutes read time

We’re stoked to be teaming up with Howdens, the UK’s number one trade kitchen supplier. Across the next 12 months Howdens will be raising awareness and funds to change the face of men’s health.

In the UK, 3 out of every 4 suicides are men and in construction 2 men die every day by suicide.

Movember funds have supported projects, such as Offload, created by Rugby League Cares, to provide mental health support to people who work in the construction industry.

As well as this, working together with Howdens, we will deliver mental health training and direct colleagues to where they can get help.

To kick start the partnership, Howdens will be encouraging employees and customers to take part in a month-long fundraising event during the month of November.

Participants can get involved by growing a moustache, as well as donating through scanning posters in depots.

Adding in a healthy dose of competition, Howdens will be listing each individual depot total which will go towards the company grand total which will be announced in December.

For those who are unable to grow a moustache, they can move or host or submit a fundraising ideas, with the best idea considered for future fundraising campaigns.

Not only will colleagues be growing a Mo, but Howdens mascot (Chisel the dog) will also be growing a Mo this Movember. We’re delighted to have Chisel and the rest of the Howdens crew supporting Movember this year.
