Hey everyone,

This month, as most of you probably know is the month in which we celebrate all things hairy! Movember is a one-month fundraising effort to try and raise money and awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostrate cancer, testicular caner, men’s inactivity and depression.

To kick it all off we had our fantastic Shave-Off on the 30th October. We had a brilliant team of volunteers and shave-ee’s so our day ran nice and smoothly despite being very busy! We shaved nearly 20 beards and quickly ran up the Movember national leader-board to take 31st place! And this was before Movember had even officially started! Thank you so much to everyone who part-took in our event it was a brilliant day!

To continue with Movember we are waiting on confirmation from several different people but we hope to have a cinema take-over and watch some moustache related films (Anchor-man anyone!?) and also a pub quiz! Ideas are still being hatched every day – the one thing we can definitely guarantee is that it is going to be the biggest and best Movember Southampton uni has seen!

Competitions will be coming up soon so make sure you’re following the UoS Movember page (https://www.facebook.com/uosmovember/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel )!

Keep an eye out for all moustache related fun, and keep us updated with your efforts!
