I am proud to announce that I have managed to persuade seven other <del>misguided fools</del> hardy souls from the Betfred Offices in Gibraltar to join me next month in raising money for Men's Health by taking part in the world-wide event that is MOVEMBER...
We will all start on Tuesday November 1st clean-shaven and will proceed to grow the very best moustaches that we can throughout the month before ending in a 'Tasche-Off' 31 days later.
I'll post some pictures of our progress throughout the month so please check out the MoSpace page of the Betfred Furry Fashionistas HERE and feel free to leave us your comments, encouragements and words of support... and I'm absolutely certain that the fine membership of the GPWA will be laughing with us and not at us, right?
Who knows.... you can even send us a donation right from our very own page if you so desire but I'll be just as happy for you to check us out and lend us some support!
Like many of us, my family has had it's brush with male-related cancers and working in Sports Betting, most employees are male and it can be at times a very testosterone-fuelled environment... we are notoriously bad at coming forward and expressing concerns about our own health and well-being, both physical and mental.
Movember aims to break that taboo with fun and a smile and point out that a finger up your bum doesn't have to be just for your own personal pleasure - it has serious health reason too!
Movember is a registered charity and donates the money raised to existing Male-Cancer charities as well as funding the Movember Foundation that deals with education and awareness of Men's physical and mental health.
I think all seven of us here at Betfred are going to need your support to keep going throughout Movember once we realise that depsite the 'tasche - we're just not as popular with our wives and girlfriends as Tom Selleck!
