This November, five members of USB2U’s trade sales team decided to grow a moustache to raise money for Movember, which funds research into some of the biggest health issues faced by men.
The campaign is committed to fighting some of the most common health issues faced by men. The funds raised help finance research into prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health and suicide prevention.
Liam Smith, USB2U’s Movember team captain, said: “We have spoken before about raising money for this cause, but we have never all participated together as a team. We didn’t expect to raise over £300 and we are proud of how our colleagues, friends and family have supported our new temporary facial hair (and such a great charity) with their donations.”
Not only did the team raise a fantastic amount of money, they also got the conversation about men’s health going in the USB2U office, something which isn’t usually the topic of choice. Talking about these kinds of things is all part of the Movember message to encourage men to open up and get checked out if they have any worries. Movember aims to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by a whopping 25% come 2030, which USB2U think is a fantastic target to strive for and hopefully our small contribution will help towards this goal.
