'M' Is For Movember


The 1st November means 'Men's Health Awareness' month has begun. 

'Movember' as it's known, see's millions of men grow their moustaches to help raise funds and prompt conversation about mens health issues. 

Here's how 'Movember' started......

"In 2003, two mates from Melbourne, Australia, Travis Garone and Luke Slattery, were having a quiet beer at the Gypsy Bar on Brunswick St, Fitzroy when their conversation turned to recurring fashion trends. They questioned where the Mo had gone and joked about bringing it back.
The two friends decided to talk their mates into growing a Mo. Inspired by a friend’s mother who was fundraising for breast cancer, they decided to make the campaign about men’s health and prostate cancer."
