Movember 2013

A number of the Nottingham Rugby team will be getting behind the Movember charity during the month of Movember.

 

Movember

 

The Movember charity was founded in Australia back in 2003. It was set up to support men's health across the world. Money raised goes towards prostate cancer, mental health and testicular cancer. The idea is that during the month of Movember (November) men across the world donate their faces to the charity, to grow a mo (moustache) for the whole month in order to, not just raise donations for their efforts, but to also raise awareness of men's health and the prostate and testicular cancer charities.

 

Rupert Cooper, the ferocious tackling back row man, is a veteran of Movember, having taken part every year since the charity first gained exposure in the UK. Cooper described the moustache he hopes to sport during Movember as "A Viking moustache, it's kind of like an extension of the traditional handle bar moustache. The peacock of handle bars if you like."

 

Like Cooper, David Jackson has been involved in Movember for a number of years, saying, "Movember is a great charity and an interesting time of year, seeing some of the lads with funny facial hair. It's great that the lads keep getting involved and raising more money and awareness every year."

 

Other players getting involved in the charity fundraising are captain Brent Wilson, Harrison Lee-Everton, Rory Lynn, Campese Ma'afu, Alex Shaw, Joe Burton, Jon Vickers and George Catchpole.

 

Keep an eye out for their moustaches throughout Movember. Below is a link to the Movember website where you can make donations once the lads have grown their moustaches if you wish.
