Show Us Your ‘Tache: Raising Money for Movember
This month at Bumper we’ve been supporting the Movember Foundation to make a difference for men’s health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
Taken from the Movember website are some shocking statistics. Men die 6 years earlier than women on average, prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years and testicular cancer rates have doubled in the last 50. Half a million suicides each year are men, which is three quarters of all suicide cases.
Started 15 years ago, the Movember Foundation has invested in more than 1,200 vital men’s health projects around the world to help combat these issues. Growing year on year, they raised £8 million across the UK in 2017 alone and aim to have reduced the number of men dying prematurely down 25% by 2030.
This month, the Bumper team and our network of dealerships and garages have been raising funds by growing their ‘taches.
Service advisors from dealerships and garages across the country also joined in this Movember by sending us a picture of their ‘taches in return for a donation.
With your help, we’ve managed to raise a total of £160 for the Movember foundation! Thank you to everybody who took part for your support in helping this vital cause!
