Story

Albert Einstein, Graham Gooch, Cliff Thorburn, Tom Selleck - throughout human history, for every great man there has been an equally great moustache. Hairy top lips that have etched their images in our brain and in the history books.

The slug, the Zapata, the Imperial and the Dali have all been signs of extraordinary virility, fecundity and manliness. So in November 2009 the lads at Bite Communications will be resurrecting hirsute greatness to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre in - Movember 2009.

Movember started in 2004 in the far-flung reaches of the empire as a way to raise awareness of men's health issues such as prostate cancer and depression. Men being men don’t like to talk about their ailments, so an annual month-long event was established that involved the growing of moustaches during the month of November. In 2007, the Movember phenomenon made its way to the shores of the UK, and after a successful year last year, the lads at Bite thought they would refertilise their filtrums and raise some money for charity.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. 35,000 men are diagnosed every year – that’s one man for every hour of every day. As prostate cancer doesn’t have the funding of some of the other charity world’s bigger players, there is still a long way to go in terms of understanding the causes and identifying the most effective ways of diagnosing and treating it as well as making more people aware of what a terrible disease it is.

So, if you have a few spare pounds lying about, please give generously to this page and we will keep you posted on our progress with weekly updates and photos on how the team is doing.
