Niftylift supports Movember for men's health
By Maria Hadlow24 November 2011
Some 20 members of the Niftylift team are supporting the Movember campaign, in which men are encouraged to grow a moustache to raise awareness of and funds for men's health - in particular prostate cancer.
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men's faces around the world. On 1 Movember, 20 clean-shaven members of UK manufacturer Niftylift registered to become 'Team Nifty' and for the rest of the month, these men with differing degrees of extravagance have developed some truly impressive face fungus.
Reasons to be involved with Movember:
- 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
- This year 37,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
- 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
- 26% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women
The members of 'Team Nifty' have donated their top lips to the cause and have raised more than £700 so far, but they and the campaign need your help. It may be too late to grow your own moustache but you can support the cause by visiting the Niftylift team page and sponsoring them with whatever you can spare.
