Movember is here and Stewart Management and Planning Solutions are proud supporters of the charity. Our company Director Ransford is already working on his Richard Roundtree-style moustache to show his support. We will also be donating to the Movember Foundation who are avid campaigners and fundraisers for men’s health and wellbeing.
What is Movember?
The Movember Foundation is the leading charity for men’s health and wellbeing. They predominately focus on three areas: Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, Prostate Cancer and Testicular Cancer. Statistically on average men die five years earlier than women, often the cause of death is largely preventable. The charity is fighting to make a change to these statistics, offering men the support they need. Furthermore, they aim to reduce premature deaths in men by a huge 25% by 2030.
Where Does the Money Go?
Since 2003 Movember has provided funding for over 1250 men’s health projects globally. Uniting experts from around the globe to collaborate on projects to radically change the support and treatment men receive. They currently work with 20 men’s health partners across 20 countries in the world. To view a full list of how the funding is spent you can click here to visit the Movember website.
