It’s that time of year again; the nights are drawing in, there’s a nip in the air, people are starting to whisper about (shock! horror!) Christmas. And suddenly you notice an abundance of slightly dodgy looking facial hair appearing on the upper lip of every other man in the office. That’s when you know autumn has arrived – Movember is here.
Only this year we’ve gotten in on the act. We’re very proud to say that we will be one of Movember’s official partners. Like us, Movember firmly believe that silly stuff matters, so we thought we could be the perfect partners in crime, encouraging men all over the world to grow that Mo and raise awareness about men’s health. We want to help and inspire men to share their fabulous Mo’s on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, spreading the word far and wide.
Every November the Movember movement is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces all over the world. Men grow and women support the moustache mania for 30 days to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health; prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. The aim of the movement is to have an impact and change the face of men’s health for good.
You don’t even need Mo-growing skills to feel part of the Movember action, women – also known as ‘Mo Sistas’, are encouraged to get the message out there and support their moustached menfolk .
There’ll be loads of Movember themed fun going on in our retail stores, from Movember stickers to members of staff sprouting their own furry upper lips. During the course of this week, our special LiMo’s will be stopping off in London, Birmingham and Manchester to offer those that pledge their support to the cause a free lift. So keep an eye out, if you’re lucky you might get a free lift with one of our LiMo bikers!
And don’t forget to keep an eye on our Twitter feed (@ThreeUK) for a pretty exciting Movember competition in the coming weeks, where you could be the proud owner of an amazing new smartphone.
So join us, register at Movember.com and start growing! And then have some fun, share your selfies with us on Facebook or by tweeting us @ThreeUK, not forgetting to use #Movember of course 😉
