About Movember

Together, we've taken men’s health in the UK by the scruff of the neck

Movember, the month formerly known as November, is when brave and selfless men around the world grow a moustache, and women step up to support them, all to raise awareness and funds for men's health - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Movember was established in 2003 by a few friends over a beer in a pub just outside Melbourne, Australia. The goal was simple - to create a campaign promoting the growth of the moustache among like-minded people, and to have fun along the way. It is about real men, talking about real issues and changing the face of men's health, one moustache at a time. Movember now spans the globe, with campaigns in over 20 countries.

Prostate Cancer UK is the main beneficiary of the Movember campaign. For the last ten years, the amazing efforts of the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from across the UK have significantly contributed to our research initiatives and have supported men by investing in our services.

Between 2012 and 2015, the Movember Foundation invested a whopping £21 million plus in our research, the Movember Centres of Excellence and True NTH.

It's about working together to make things better for men in the UK

Moustache season is about real men growing real moustaches. And talking about real issues. Face grown, hand brushed, crafted with pride.

On Movember 1st Mo Bros start the month clean shaven, then grow and groom their moustache all month long.

There's lots of ways to get involved whether that be motivating your friends and family to donate and support your efforts, encouraging men to make an annual appointment for a check up or attending a Mo party to celebrate your mo growing achievements.

What to do

Help us to fund cutting-edge research and support men living with prostate cancer.

Thank you to nearly 140,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas who raised an incredible £9 million for Movember 2014 in the UK.

    The important thing to remember when you’re affected by prostate disease is that you’re not alone. There are lots of people out there who are on very similar journeys and who have had the treatments and experiences you will be facing.

    So, if you have prostate cancer, other prostate diseases, or if you’re the partner, family or friend of someone affected, we can help you talk to someone who’s been there.
