It was fun but itchy! The moustache finally bites the dust. Thanks to all for your generous donations. In total I raised over £250 for men's health which is mainly channelled by Movember into the fight against prostate and testicular cancer.

Until recently I was one of the many men blind to the extent of prostate cancer. Did you know almost as many men die each year from prostate cancer as woman do from breast cancer? Prostate cancer however receives only 20% of the research funding provided for breast cancer and the level of awareness is generally much lower. Let's hope Movember changes the landscape for men's health. A big pat on the back for all those who participated in Movember and many many thanks to everyone who donated whether it was through me or through others they knew who were growing (probably much better) moustaches.
