We like to do our bit for charity at Butler Residential and we love seeing people in and around St Neots doing the same.

Some run marathons for charity, others row single-handedly across the Atlantic to support good causes, but a growing band of men are ditching the razors, sitting back and letting nature do its thing to grow moustaches next month, all in the name of raising money for men’s health charities.

Movember started as a group of friends challenging each other to grow a moustache back in 2004.

It has gone on to raise millions towards work in men’s mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer research and grown into a popular movement with men across the world.

But now it’s not just for the ‘Mo Brothers’ as new challenges introduced mean women can get involved and be ‘Mo Sisters’.

Here’s how the Movember website is encouraging everyone to get involved.


More than just follicles on your face, your moustache is a ribbon. With it, you can remind people of the importance of men’s health and urge them to take action with a donation.


How you run or walk is up to you. Take it fast, take it slow. Push your limits outside (or on the treadmill) and take on 60km over the month for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour.


Host in person or online. Think big. Think small. Think delicious, competitive, or creative. It’s all about bringing people together to have fun while doing good.

Mo Your Own Way

A choose-your-own-adventure challenge, epic in scope and scale. You need imagination, determination and fire in your belly. It’s an open-ended invitation to test your limits in the name of men’s health and have a tonne of fun while you’re getting it done.

Whether it’s a test of physical endurance or a not-so-sweaty pledge to kick a bad habit, it’s whatever Mo Your Own Way means to you.
