Movember


by Alison, 04/11/2013

Last Tuesday I got to Skype Ollie  and well there was a surprise awaiting me. Gone was my boyfriend and hello Mustachio Man. Having been sailing through some pretty rough seas, shaving was an after thought until he reached the calm port of Valletta, Malta. Then being the joker he is, he decided to have a bit of fun with me, hence the tache. Turns out the joke was on him because after I adjusted (well actually I might have to see him face to face for that), I asked him was he going to do Movember.


Movember in case you haven't heard of it, is an international charity who's goal is to raise awareness and funds for prostate and testicular cancer and men's mental health. They do this by asking men to grow a moustache for the month of November.

Anyway after a bit of thought, it turns out he is. The image above landed on our instagram on the 31/10/2013 just before he once again left telephones and internet behind. It will take some getting used to it, but I am very proud of him. Love how generous he is.

Anyway I have set up his Movember page, if anybody feels like supporting a good cause. Even if you can't donate, maybe take some time to read about the cause. After all awareness is half the battle. And if you do see someone unexpected wearing a moustache this month give them some support!
