The money raised by the UK participants all goes towards funding programmes directed by Movember and their partners Prostate Cancer UK and the Institute of Cancer Research

On the day, those signing up will be given a welcome goody bag which includes free goodies and a fundraising kit.

All those attending the launch and those unable to make it can sign up and join the Covers Movember team – Covers Mo Bros – at By signing up, not only will the tache lovers be joining a team of like minded folk, but their family, friends and colleagues will also be able to sponsor them directly and leave them words of encouragement.
