Grow a Mo – raise some dough!

CALLING ALL MEN! CancerCare is urging men to lay down their razors for the month of November to raise money for local cancer support.

Grow A Mo is a campaign run by local charity CancerCare to raise money for the cancer support services it provides in North Lancashire and South Lakeland.

The charity is asking men to start November 1st with a clean shaven face - then over the month get sponsored to grow a moustache.

And they’re offering a fun pack of cut-out moustaches to try at home – including The Magnum PI, The Strong Man, and the Fu Manchu – as part of their registration pack.

Registration is free – just email or call fundraising on 01524 381320 for a pack.

A launch party – with music from the Groove Cutters – is planned at the Penny Street Bridge on November 1st, and throughout October the pub will be encouraging its customers to start planning their moustaches.

At the end of the month, the moustachioed heroes will be invited to a Tash Bash, also at the Penny Street Bridge, where prizes will be handed out for the best (and worst!) tashes.

Four good reasons to support CancerCare's Grow a Mo this year:

  • Every day, 25 people are diagnosed with cancer in our area.
  • Over 25% of the people that use CancerCare’s services are male.
  • CancerCare is a local charity supporting anyone affected by cancer in the North Lancs and South Lakes area - including families and carers.
  • CancerCare offers a specialist support group for local people affected by prostate cancer.

There are three rules – men must start the month with a clean shaven face, moustaches must not be attached to beards or sideburns, and all sponsorship money raised must be received by CancerCare by 31st January 2014.

CancerCare is now celebrating its 30th year of being dedicated to the support of people whose lives are affected by cancer – patients, families and carers – in North Lancs and the South Lakes.
