A year ago we published an article about Movember.

Do you remember what's it all about?

Movember is about bringing back the moustache (Mo), having fun and doing good to change the face of men's health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. Prostate cancer particularly has a high profile nowadays with 40000 cases diagnosed each year. For more information click here Men take action by changing their appearance through the growth of a new moustache for the 30 days of Movember, and in doing so become walking, talking adverts for men's health.

Several famous "Mos" I am sure you will recognise
