Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

This November I'll be partaking in Movember and growing my moustache. Whereas normally I would expect this to provoke ridicule and alienation, I'm hoping that in this particular month it'll prompt a donation to a good cause. 

That cause is the U.K. Thalassaemia Society. Thalassaemia is particularly prevalent in Pakistan where my family are from and where I was born. My older brother was diagnosed with it at birth and it affected him for his 27 years. It's not something much of a light is shed on and sufferers don't have a lot of public exposure, as with many diseases, so it makes most sense to me that I spotlight this charity here in the UK as part of my fundraising this month. 

If you're able to donate - thank you - but if you aren't, then I would be just as appreciative if you could share this. 

~ Now for a generic JustGiving assurance ~
