Players and Staff to Take Part in Movember
Burton Albion’s players and staff will be growing moustaches throughout the month of November in support of Prostate Cancer UK.
And supporters can get involved too as Burton Albion, The Football League and its Official Charity Partner for the 2012/13 season, Prostate Cancer UK, are asking supporters to grow a moustache in support of Movember. Each season, Movember raises awareness and millions of pounds for men’s health with Prostate Cancer UK being Movember’s prime beneficiary partner in the UK.
All of the Burton Albion players and staff will be taking part so please visit out Movember Page at http://mobro.co/burtonalbion1 Ato donate.
Long serving Albion left back Aaron Webster said, ‘It’s for a great cause, the lads might look a bit silly but it’s all for a good cause so try and back us. The lads want to raise a bit of money for charity so I think the majority of the squad are going to take part.
‘The rules state you need to be clean shaven on the first of November so I’ll have a shave tonight. Some of the lads say I have a bad tash as it is. Chris Palmer is talking about growing a moustache all the way down under his chin as well. Jimmy Phillips has got no chance, Anthony O’Connor’s moustache is pathetic and John McGrath might look more like Freddie Mercury.’
With the support of its 72 clubs, The Football League and Prostate Cancer UK are aiming to raise both money and awareness of prostate cancer and promote a positive message for men’s health. One in nine men will develop prostate cancer at some stage in their life and every hour someone dies from the disease.
Female supporters are also encouraged to play their part by convincing male friends and family to take part (and by re-assuring them that a moustache would really suit them).
