Support City's Movember campaign

Bristol City staff are sporting their strong moustaches in supporter of this year's Movember campaign.

Now in its 12th year in the UK, Movember encourages millions of men around the world to embrace the moustache in all its glorious forms in support of men's health. Whether men fly the flag solo or join up with friends, work colleagues, sports clubs, schools or universities, adding some hair to their upper lip drives awareness and generates funds for vital men’s health issues.

To date, through moustaches grown, connections created, and conversations generated, Movember has proudly welcomed over six million supporters and helped fund 1,250 innovative men’s health projects across twenty countries. But there is still plenty more to be done. 

In the UK, the stats are shocking. One man dies every 45 minutes from prostate cancer, while more than 333,000 are living with the disease. Twelve men a day take their own lives and three out of four suicides are by men, making it the biggest killer of males under 45 in the UK. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men, and although in most cases the outcome for men with the disease is positive, a 95% chance of survival is of no comfort to the one in twenty who won’t make it.
