It’s that time of the year when the male population of the country does its best to grow weird and wonderful facial hair in the name of charity. The men folk of Prova are no different this Movember and have been busy cultivating their own hairy creations.
While a hairy face has the ability to keep its owner warm during this cold and wet period, there is a more socially responsible reason that each year a large percentage of the UK’s male population grows facial hair. Movember is a fun way to raise awareness for a serious cause: men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.
So why do so many men take up the challenge and become walking and talking billboards for the cause? Probably the same reason why thousands of women don the colour pink and run 5km every year. So many people are touched by this awful disease and by doing their bit to help either raise a little money or drive awareness to ensure people continue to look after themselves properly by conducting regular checks for lumps and bumps it all helps in some way.
While the Prova men have been busy growing their beards and being walking billboards, they have not been so active in raising funds for the cause. So this is where we ask your help.
