Shavers' Man of the Mo'ment

Written by Advice Team on November 1, 2018

Here at Shavers, we are delighted to support one of our team members, Peter Blake, who is 'growing a mo to save a bro' this November.

Movember, the month formerly known as November, is when brave and selfless men around the world grow a moustache, and women step up to support them, all to raise awareness and funds for men's health - in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

As well as sporting the 'tache, Peter will be carrying out a number of physical challenges, including swimming, squash, badminton and football to help raise donations, start conversations and inspire real change. Keep checking here for updates throughout the month on Peter's journey for Movember and making a difference!


"My stepdad has raised my brother and myself as if we were his own and I love him like a father, he is now suffering with his prostate. I have been suffering from mental health issues for a few years now and have lost a close friend to suicide. I feel like it's time to stand up and fight these issues, so I am here to raise money for all those guys who are suffering and to let them know that they are not alone." - Peter Blake
