Movember 2010 – Please support the cause

My default setting, face-fuzz wise, is an disorganised goatee. The last time it was just the soup-strainer, I was still at school, and look what good that did for me….

This Movember, the month formerly known as November, I’ve decided to donate my face to raising awareness about prostate cancer. My donation and commitment is the growth of a moustache for the entire month of Movember, which I know will generate conversation, controversy and laughter.

((Given the speed and thickness with which my facial hair grows, I am expecting much laughter. Lots of it. Belly laughs of it throwing up all over the place))

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men.

One man dies every hour from the disease in the UK.

This is a cause that I feel passionately about and I’m asking you to support my efforts by making a donation to The Prostate Cancer Charity.

To help, you can either:

• Click this link and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account .


• Send cheques and CAF vouchers (made payable to ‘The Prostate Cancer Charity Re Movember’) directly to The Prostate Cancer Charity – First Floor, Cambridge House, Cambridge Grove, London W6 0LE. Be sure to include my name on the back of the cheque. (It’s at the top of your browser if you have come here via Twitter and wonder if I’m a real Doctor….)

The Prostate Cancer Charity will use the money raised by Movember for the development of programs related to awareness, public education, advocacy, support of those affected, and research into the prevention, detection, treatment and cure of prostate cancer.

For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used and the impact Movember is having please visit the Movember Foundation

Thank you in advance for helping me to support men’s health.
