Movember is an annual awareness month which aims to draw attention to Men's Health, with an emphasis on general care and wellbeing, mental health and cancers. The Movember Foundation donate the money raised to a number of charities and organisations that work to help men live longer, happier and healthier lives.
Whilst the month is primarily focused on Men’s Health, absolutely everyone is welcome to get involved!
This November Lancaster University Students’ Union will be working with colleges, teams and societies to support Movember. Over the month, there’ll be a series of events, including a free comedy night with Dave Chawner!
Movember is all about raising awareness of men’s health, physical, mental and sexual. We want to nurture a culture where everyone can talk about and feel safe discussing all issues.
We are lucky at Lancaster to have an open and inspiring community – let’s make the most of it! Movember is a fab opportunity to make a move, host a mo-ment or simply sport a moustache - there will be stick on tasche’s galore throughout the month so no worries if you can’t grow one! Movember is a great time to learn about maintaining a healthy life for a happier you, how to fulfil our wellbeing and the importance of talking about our problems as a key step in getting help for them – a problem shared is a problem halved!
If you want to get involved or host a Mo-ment there’s 3 simple things you need to do:
Tasche Bash – Sugarhouse, 11pm Saturday 3 November
Movember Comedy Night with Dave Chawner
