Gillingham FC backing the 2014 Movember Campaign to help change the face of men's health

Movember is reaching out to the football community to grow a moustache for men’s health and Gillingham are backing the campaign.

Movember is encouraging fans to join Gillingham at and together we can change the face of men’s health. Simply search Gillingham at to join the official team.

The Movember Foundation is a global men’s health charity which raises vital funds and awareness for the often ignored issues of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health.

It is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world in November when men become walking talking billboards for men’s health. Mo Bros start the month clean-shaven, and then grow and groom their moustache all month long. 

Funds are directed to men’s health programmes which are shaped by Movember’s vision to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. Programme areas focus on awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer, staying mentally healthy and research.

Programmes are delivered by the Movember Foundation and its men’s health partners in each country. Further information about how Movember’s funds are invested can be found at 

The Movember journey began in 2003 with a few mates in a pub in Melbourne, Australia. The goal was simple – to create a campaign promoting the growth of the moustache among like-minded people and have fun along the way.

It is about real men growing real moustaches, talking about real issues to help to change the face of men’s health.  Movember now spans the globe across 21 countries.

Since inception, a global army of over 4 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have grown, or supported the growth of a moustache. To date more than £345 million has been raised globally and over 800 men’s health projects are being funded.
