Sensei JeremyMovember - Moustache Growing Charity

I am taking part in Movember along with a number of colleagues at work - growing a moustache in the month of November to raise funds and awareness for men's health - specifically prostrate and testicular cancer.

Did you know one man dies every hour from prostate cancer in the UK each year and more than 2,000 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer this year? The more people we can get to become Citizens of Movember, the more lives we can impact. You can join as a Mo Sista to show your support and donate money to a good cause. You will also get to laugh at me for looking quite special.

Please donate guys as this is a very good cause.

You can donate on the link below or come and see me in class.
