Kent County Cricket Club marks the end of Movember

Thursday 1st December 2011

Kent County Cricket Club staff and players have been growing some impressive moustaches this Movember, for a very good cause. The month formerly known as November is now dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men's health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Kent Cricket playersDarren Stevens andGeraint Jones, havejoined CEO Jamie Clifford, Chairman George Kennedy and a number of Club staff in donating their top lip to the cause for 30 days in an effort to help change the face of men's health. Their Mo’s, and those of staff at Club sponsor, Spitfire Kentish Ale have generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancers affecting men.

Kent all-rounder, Darren Stevens commented on the campaign; “I’m happy to be able to support the campaign, and I’m pleased to see that our CEO has joining in. I hope that our involvement encourages supporters to donate to this very worthwhile cause and also spreads awareness of prostate and testicular cancer.”

Why are we so passionate about men's health?

* 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.
