This will especially benefit those that have reached the age of 19 and are no longer to attend Little Havens. The new hospice however will cost £16 million to build.

MOVEMBER (formerly November) at Barrons

About The Campaign

During the month of November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of mens’ faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for mens’ health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

On Movember 1st, those guys registered at Movember.com start the month with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery, raising funds by seeking sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts. This year Barrons are proud to announce that they too have a team of Mo Bros consisting of Richard Mumford, Russell Tillbrook, Jason Michelow, Martin Beales, Sean Tierney and Lee Styles

The Mo Team

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Being one of the busiest times of the year for meetings in the lead up to Self-assessment, we thought it would be the ideal opportunity to promote this charity event.
