The month of the moustache is upon us mama, and whether you love them or hate them, The Movember Foundation is leading a global commitment to change the face (quite literally) of men’s health. Having raise dover $5 billion Hong Kong Dollars in funds for prostate cancer and poor mental health since 2003, this is definitely a charity we can get behind – facial hair aside! This year Movember is all about moving, and whether you simply want to support your hubby in growing his tash by making a donation, or just fancy getting involved, expect to see a surge in furry upper lips and a lot more MOVEment in the city! Be sure to register as an honorary Mo Sista and check out these events and campaigns happening across the month…
