Movember

Movember

November 6, 2013

Throughout the month of November, most male staff and some Year 11 boys at Noadswood are supporting Movember. They are joining men around the globe growing moustaches to raise funds and awareness of male specific cancers – “changing the face of men’s health”.

Every year we have a theme for Movember – this year it’s Super Heroes – “THE MOVENGERS”, being heroic in fighting cancer! Being a part of this fundraising initiative enables the pupils to participate in the wider aspect of charity involvement and for boys, in particular, to think about their wellbeing. The moustaches have been a spring-board for conversations and discussions about health issues and have also been a bit of fun. This year we will have a day where fake moustaches will be auctioned to pupils with funds going to the Movember cause.

Here at Noadswood we have been supporting Movember for the last three years and during that time the school has raised approximately £3000.
