Kingdom supervisor raising funds for Movember

imagePaul Brown, Kingdom’s Security Supervisor at IKEA in Nottingham, is taking part in Movember, growing a moustache for 30 days to raise money for the Movember Foundation, or as the charity puts it he is “committing his upper lip to help change the face of men’s health”.

The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising £402 million and funding over 1,000 programmes focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

They invest strategically in these four key focus areas to have an everlasting impact on men’s health. They create positive change for men’s health by raising awareness and educating men year-round, and through their take-over of the month formerly known as November.

Paul is passionate about this charity, believing that too many men are dying unnecessarily from prostate cancer. It’s predicted that the number of cases will almost double by 2030. The organisation funds research and health services so that fewer men die from prostate cancer, and so that the quality of life is improved for those men living with the disease. One in every eight men are currently diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lives. At the time of writing, Paul has raised £135 for Movember, and aims to raise £250 by the end of the month. He would be extremely grateful for any support received. Kingdom has been pleased to make a contribution to support Paul’s fundraising efforts.
