Why Movember?

As founders of My Science Club, Bryony and Paul are taking on Movember as our charity this year as men’s mental and physical health is really important to us and our families.

We’re going to be doing lots of exciting things moustache related events on our social media including a weekly membership giveaway on both Facebook and Twitter worth £49.99! All you have to do is have a guess at who is the owner of our daily ‘Who’s moustache is it anyway?’ competition.  These start at 8am every Monday with a zoom out image of the moustached scientist each day. The full reveal and winner will be announced on Friday each week throughout November. You don’t even need to be correct to be in with a chance and you can enter as many times as you like!

As a business, Paul and Bryony have chosen to donate £1 from their own pockets for every single My Science Club membership and 100 Ideas book purchased in November to this amazing cause too! We’ll add the total to our Just Giving page at the end of the month so if you’re thinking of joining us or renewing your membership this month then now is the perfect time!

If you really want a chuckle as well as raising some money for this fantastic charity, then why not take a look at our Just Giving page (link below) where Paul, Billy, Bryony’s 14 year old son and Louis, Bryony’s 15 year old nephew, are taking on the famous moustache challenge. We’ll be posting weekly photos of their efforts throughout November which has already started with their clean shaven photo from 1st November!

But, we’re doing all of this silliness for some really serious reasons…

Our fathers, partners, brothers, uncles and friends are facing a health crisis, yet it’s rarely talked about. Men are dying too young. We don’t want to stay silent.

Movember are the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. They know what works for men – and what doesn’t. Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention – they’re taking them all on.

Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, and shaking up men’s health research.

Thank you for reading and supporting this amazing charity with us this November. If you’re growing a moustache this November, feel free to use our Just Giving page as your vehicle to collect sponsorship and of course, we always love hearing from you about what your science clubbers get up to so don’t forget to tag us in your posts this month, even if they’re not moustache related!
